New Delhi, Oct 28 (UNI) The CPI(M) today strongly condemned the ''heinous attack by the Maoists'' in Jharkhand, and urged the Centre to chalk out an action plan to counter naxalite violence there and in Chhattisgarh.

''The Central Government should immediately draw up a plan for coordinated action by the security forces in Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh, which are the two most affected States by naxalite violence,'' CPI (M) Polit Bureau said in a statement here.

At least 18 persons, including the son of former chief minister Babulal Marandi, were killed and 13 injured early yesterday when naxalites fired indiscriminately on people watching a cultural function, organised after a four-day soccer match, in Chilkhari village of Jharkhand's Giridih district.
