An alert has been sounded on the Andhra-Orissa border (AOB) and in some Telangana districts of Andhra Pradesh in the wake of the killing of top Maoist leader Kishenji in an encounter.

"We have asked district superintendents of police to be on alert as Kishenji hailed from Andhra Pradesh," a senior police officer said.

Kishenji was killed in an encounter with the joint forces at Burisole forest in West Midnapore district of West Bengal.

58-year-old Molajula Koteswar Rao, better known as Kishenji, hailed from Pedapally in Karimnagar district of Andhra Pradesh.
