Raipur, Nov 29: 10 jawans were reportedly killed in a Naxalite attack on Thursday in Dantewada near Konta in Chhattisgarh. The incident occurred just a day after leading Maoist Salvam Dula surrendered before the Malkangiri SP Satish Kumar Gajbhiye yesterday.

Earlier in September, heavily armed Naxalites had attacked a patrol party of CRPF’s 51 battalion in Dantewada district. After a severe gun-battle, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel had managed to gun down three Naxalites in the encounter.

It should also be recalled that at least 12 policemen were killed as armed Naxalites attacked a police party in the region on August 29.

Dantewada is considered one of the most Naxal infested areas, not just in Chhattisgarh but throughout India. It is suspected that the central leadership of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) reside here.

An anti-Maoist Salwa Judum campaign, projected as a spontaneous “peace campaign” backed by the Government had taken effect here on June 2005. But it did not work and was suspended on April 10, 2006.
