Intelligence reports have said that the ultras have celebrated hard in the dense forest areas across Chhattisgarh and even neighbouring Andhra Pradesh after the blood game on May 25. The celebrations were taking place in the liberated zones across the Red corridor, said an anti-Maoist operation official.
The Maoists's macabre dance after killing Karma could be just a prelude.
Top and senior-level leaders have been holding meetings about the 'near perfect' ambush, which they consider as a historic win. State Congress chief Nand Kumar Patel was also among the killed.
At least five attempts were made on Karma's life before, the last one being the one last November.
The massacre has left the Congress in the state a devastated lot ahead of the assembly elections due later this year. The Congress has been accusing the BJP government in the state of not providing enough security to its leaders and workers against such ghastly attack.
