The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids at several sites linked to suspected overground workers (OGWs) of the banned CPI (Maoist) outfit in Chhattisgarh, according to an official statement released on Friday. These searches carried out on Thursday, are part of an investigation into a CPI (Maoist)-led IED attack on a convoy during the 2023 Chhattisgarh Assembly elections. The affected area is known for left-wing extremism.

"NIA teams seized several mobile phones and Rs 2,98,000 in cash during the searches at premises associated with suspects believed to be OGWs/supporters of the Mainpur-Nuapada division of the CPI (Maoist)," the statement read.

The searches were extensive, covering the locations of six suspects in Badegobra village, under the Gariyaband district's Manipur police station area.

The attack in November 2023 injured a head constable from the Indo-Tibetan Border Police's ADHOC 615 Battalion. NIA took over the case in February 2024, identifying CPI (Maoist) cadres as responsible for the assault.
