A company of PAC (Provincial Armed Constabulary) along with an increased number of civil policemen here have been deployed to gaurd Singh's native village Bhabhaura here and also its adjoining villages, Muniraj said.
Bhabhaura is in the list of naxal-affected villages of Chakia block in the district and is also close to Naugarh region.
