Raipur: A day after Maoists targeted six
Salwa Judum (anti-Naxal) camps near CRPF and police units in
Chhattisgarh`s Dantewada district, all police stations have
been put on alert and search operations launched.

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

Security has been stepped up 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 heavy firing in Injaram and
Arrabore triggering a gunbattle 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 either side, police
said.

Last week, Maoists had attacked the house of a Congress
leader in Dantewada district, killing two of his relatives,
they said.
