Raipur: Naxals allegedly set on fire four vehicles of a private firm engaged in a road construction work in insurgency-hit Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh on Friday, police said.

The incident occurred at a remote Muskel village under Dantewada police station limits where work on construction of a road was underway, Dantewada superintendent of police Kamlochan Kashyap told PTI.

 

As per preliminary information, a group of armed ultras stormed the spot this evening and threatened the employees and labourers to leave the place, following which they torched four vehicles, including a truck, a tipper and a SUV, he said.

Later, they fled from the spot to the interior forests, he added.

Security forces were rushed to the spot after labourers informed police about the incident, the SP said, adding that a search operation has been launched to trace the Maoists.
