Raipur, May 9: A day after Naxals killed 8 CRPF personnel in Bijapur district of Chattisgrah, the state Home Minister asked the Center to seek  Army's help in tackling  the Maoists menace in the district.

"As per my knowledge six people have been killed in the attack. In today's scenario, the Army should be used to tackle Naxals. It completely depends on the central government to take a call on this. They cannot use the power of bullet in a democracy to come into power," says Chhattisgarh Home Minister Nankiram Kanwar.

The state Home Minister pointed out at the carelessness shown by the slain CRPF personnel which led to their killing.

"It appears that the security personnel ignored the instruction not to travel in any kind of vehicle in the Naxal-infested areas," Kanwar said.
