Kanker (Chhattisgarh), Apr 28 (ANI): Suspected Maoists attacked a family in Chhattisgarh's Kanker District and looted household items worth Rs 6,000.
The Maoists broke open the door of Prem Singh at Panidobri village here falling under the Koyalibeda Police Station on the night of April 23, and beat his family before fleeing with the household items.
To justify their violence, Maoists alleged that Kumar was a police informer.
This act was also done to terrorise the people in the area.
Union Home Minister P Chidambaram has said the government would continue to follow a two-pronged approach on Naxal problem.
"Government will continue to follow its two-pronged approach of development and calibrated police action to deal with the Naxal problem," Chidambaram said.
He said the debate on what should take place first- development or police action- is misplaced.
"The decision will vary from situation to situation and from State to State and no fixed prescription is possible. In some areas, it may be possible to undertake some developmental activities, to be followed immediately by steps to strengthen security and in other areas, it may be necessary to first launch police action to regain control of the territory, followed by vigorous developmental activities," Chidambaram said.
