Dantewada : In Dantewada, a Naxal-affected area of Chhattisgarh, Naxalites kidnapped Engineer Aran Maravi, Engineer Mohan Baghel and Munshi of Gupta Construction Company of Durg, who came to work for the PMGSY. However, after about 30 hours later on Saturday late evening, the Maoists have released them near Sameli village. His bike and mobile were also returned. A road of about twenty kilometers is to be prepared for Palanar-Aranpur-Muller in Kuakonda block. Naxalites do not want this road to be built. They have dug this road many times. On Friday, the two engineers arrived with Munshi to inspect the spot.
Meanwhile, the Naxalites kidnapped all three. They were under the occupation of Naxals from Malangir and Aranpur areas. SP Dr Abhishek Pallava has confirmed the release of the three. For the information, let us tell that in the same area Alex Pal Menon, the then collector of Sukma, was also abducted by the Naxalites. The Collector was freed by the administration through mediation. Palanar-Aranpur-Mular Road is to be prepared. This is a 20 km road. This road is to be built at a cost of about 6 crores.
Naxalites have damaged this road many times by digging it. Whenever there is an attempt to make the road, the administration has to face it. Naxalites have been continuously developing roads and other infrastructure development in the region. Many incidents of arson have occurred in this area during road construction. However, the administration has also achieved many major successes. Many big hardcore Naxalites have surrendered.
