Naxal-free village was built
Two days ago, Naxals set ablaze 14 vehicles, water tanks and machines in Bhansi village adjacent to dantewada district headquarters. Bhansi is the same village that was declared a Naxal-free village by the Dantewada police two years ago. Then the villagers heaved a sigh of relief. But once again the presence of Naxalites in this village has spread panic.
Naxals had demolished their own school by surrendering.
Bhansi is the same village where naxals had created havoc before 2019. In 2014, Naxals had demolished the primary school. Due to the Naxal scare, the government did not bother to restart this school. But in 2020, 18 Naxals from the area surrendered. After this, these people demanded from the officers that these schools should be restarted. As soon as the new education session started, the school was shifted here again. It was the first school in Bastar to be restarted.
