Most people in remote parts of Chhattisgarh have been living under an atmosphere of fear and despair due to threats from Naxals. The dwellers are uncertain about their future. However, the residents of a village in Dantewada are now being asked by the Naxals to leave their houses after being suspicious of being informers.
Therefore, the police have decided to set up camps in Dantewada after receiving complaints that Naxals have compelled over a dozen of families to leave their village. One of the victims told ANI: "They accused me of being a police informer and forced my family out of village, we had to leave all our belongings behind and move to our relative's place."
According to the victim, he was under house arrest for the past three years. However, he had escaped the area to see his ailing wife, who was admitted to a hospital a few months back. He further told ANI that when Naxalites came to know of his escape, they took away his father and brother to investigate his whereabouts.
Police investigation in the matter is underway. Meanwhile, Dantewada SP Abhishek Pallav told ANI, "In the last six-eight months, we have conducted operations in the area, which have unsettled Naxals due to that they are threatening the villagers and forcing them to leave villages.

"We are planning to set up police camps to deal with Naxals and bring peace in the region," Pallav added.
