The red rebels blocked road near Bonda Pipil village under Kotagarh police limits in Kandhamal district as part of the 24-hour bandh called by them in Odisha and Chhattisgarh.
The vehicular movement on Rayagada-Kandhamal route was disrupted due to the road blockade.
The Maoists also pasted posters on trees and other places protesting the anti-Maoist operation in the region.
The posters bearing the name of The Bansadhara-Ghumusara-Nagavali (BGN) Division Committee of outlawed CPI (Maoist) urged locals to observe bandh today.
Earlier, the Maoists reportedly released an audio tape asking people to observe a 24-hour bandh on December 28.
In the audio tape, the rebels had allegedly warned the police administration that a fitting reply would soon be given to anti-Maoist operation.
