Chhattisgarh police beef up security in border districts

Published: May 22,2009


The Chhattisgarh police have beefed up security in the state following Naxalites gunning down 16 police personnel in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district today.

" Security has been beefed up in the Naxal-infested areas of Kanker and Rajnandgaon districts,"a top police official told media. During the last two days the Naxal leadership had given a'bandh call' in Chhattisgarh due to which the routine life was partially affected, police said.

Naxalites today indiscriminately fired at the police team when they were on a routine patrolling between Mumumgaon and Dhanora in the Gadchiroli district.
