Maoists set ablaze construction vehicles in Chhattisgarh

Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) cadres set ablaze a tractor and a mixture machine engaged in road construction work in Narayanpur District on May 18, reports The Pioneer. They warned workers against getting involved in construction works and then fled into the forests.

Meanwhile, the Border Security Force (BSF) busted a Maoist hideout and recovered a cache of arms and Naxal [Left Wing Extremism (LWE)] banners from a dense forest in Kanker District on May 18, reports PTI. Security Forces (SFs) also recovered 10 Single Barrel Muzzle Loading (SBML) guns hidden inside the cavity of two separate trees.

Further, Chhattisgarh Police arrested three people and recovered a large quantity of explosive materials meant for the Naxals in the State in two different places in Bastar District and Sukma District on May 18, reports The Indian Express. Police also recovered 300 electronic detonators, 250 gelatin sticks, and four bundles of wires

Separately, the Chhattisgarh High Court ordered Bastar Police to produce ''surrendered'' CPI-Maoist Podiyam Panda next Monday (May 22) in Raipur District on May 18, reports The Times of India. The court was hearing a habeas corpus petition filed by Panda''s wife Muiyye, who has alleged that Police detained him illegally and did not allow her to meet him in custody.

In the meantime, the intelligence sources told The Asian Age on May 18 that over 100 armed guerrillas of CPI-Maoist from Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha have sneaked into south Bastar and were spotted in the jungles of Bijapur-Sukma region. According to the intelligence, CPI-Maoist cadres are planning a repeat of the April 24 Sukma attack, in which 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were killed, by launching a major operation against SFs.
