Bhubaneswar: 30/12/18:As many as 19 Maoists were killed in encounter while 39 were arrested after exchange of fire with security forces this year, Director General of Police (DGP) RP Sharma said on Saturday.

Presenting the annual report at a press conference here about the success of the state police in anti-Maoist operation, Sharma said a total of 27 extremists surrendered to police this year.
