Naxalites have already abducted villagers
Let us inform that even before this, Naxalites have carried out such incidents in many districts of Bastar division. The villagers are picked up and taken away and then released after two-three days. The Naxalites pressurize the villagers not to help the force. It is said that there is anger among the Naxalites due to the new dawn (Poona Narkom) campaign run by the Sukma Police. Under the campaign, more than 150 Naxalites have so far surrendered leaving the path of violence in the district, which is weakening their support base.
