Raipur: A day after Maoists targeted six
Salwa Judum camps located near CRPF and police units in
Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh, all police stations have
been put on alert and search operations have been launched.

Police officials in Dantewada today said that combing
operations have been intensified in wake of the attack last
night and searches have been initiated to nab the naxals
involved in firing at six places--Injaram, Bhejji, Arrabore,
Gorkha, Gonta and Maruiguda.

Also, security has been stepped in all Salwa Judum camps,
they said.

Salwa Judum is anti-Maoist force comprising armed
civilians with the tacit support of Chhattisgarh government.

The Naxals had resorted to heaving firing in Injaram and
Arrabore triggering a gun battle with the security personnel
yesterday. They had also set off an improvised explosive
device (IED) at Gadiras area of the district.

However, there were no causalities on the either side,
police said.

Maoists had attacked the house of a Congress leader in
Dantewada district on July 8 killing two of his relatives.
