Naxals launched the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA) week, causing bus services on the Narayanpur-Orchha route to be suspended and injuring two CRPF soldiers in an IED blast.
During the first day of the PLGA week, an improvised explosive device (IED) explosion injured CRPF soldiers in the Barsur police station area, Dantewada Police confirmed. The incident occurred while personnel from the 195th Battalion were attempting to defuse a concealed IED in a Maoist banner near the Saatdhaar bridge on the Barsur Palli route.
Although the injured soldiers are out of danger and currently receiving treatment, bus services on the Narayanpur-Orchha route have been temporarily halted as a preventive measure due to the ongoing PLGA week.
This recent disruption follows an earlier incident on November 27, where suspected Naxals set fire to nearly 14 vehicles and machinery engaged in construction work in Dantewada district. The attack, orchestrated around 1:30 am at Bangali camp under Bhansi police station limits, involved a group of approximately 25–30 individuals, most of whom were disguised as villagers. The swift response from the police helped contain the fire after the assailants fled the scene.
The PLGA week, which runs from December 2 to 8, commemorates the Naxal organization’s founding day and has historically resulted in increased activity and disruptions by the rebel groups, raising security concerns in affected areas.
