On December 24 last year, two jawans of the SOG sustained critical injuries after an improvised explosive device (IED), allegedly planted by Maoists, exploded in Kandhamal district.

The same month, an exchange of fire between Maoists and security forces took place during a combing operation in Nalikumbha forest under Manmunda police limits in Boudh district.
