VISAKHAPATNAM: A landmine was reportedly blasted at Gunukuraya village of G.K. Veedhi mandal in the agency area on Wednesday. While the police sources said it was an exchange of fire, there was a talk that the landmine was set off by vested interests to justify the combing operation in the agency in view of the public hearing on the refinery at Makavarapalem on June 7.
