Raipur, Aug 13:

Eight persons of a family, including women and children, were burnt alive by naxals at Koylibeda village in Chhattisgarh's Kanker district today.
''The victims were one party in a land dispute and had declined to obey the Maoists' one-sided decision in the matter. Police officers have rushed to the spot,'' state Director-General of Police Vishwaranjan told UNI.
The officer said the land dispute was between two families and one of the parties contacted self-styled rebel Commander Nagesh who was active in the area. The other party was subsequently summoned by the ultras. A public court was conducted but the family refused to abide by the ruling.
Amidst reports of large-scale action against the extremists by the Centre and state government, this act of cruelty has spread terror in the area.
This was the first crime of its kind in recent years. The militants usually target police and informers
