It was a black day for the state of Chhattisgarh when the Naxalites blasted a BJP convoy near Shyamgiri village with an improvised explosive device (IED) in Dantewada district on April 9. A total of five people were killed in this blast which includes the MLA, his driver and three security personnel. The MLA belonging from BJP party of Dantewada district went to address a campaign for the general elections in Shyamgiri village on April 9.
As reported, he was asked to avoid the route to Shyamgiri village by the local police personnel as it is a Maoists affected area. He still insisted to go to the village to address his campaign for the general elections irrespective of all the warning. Later, while returning back from the village, his SUV got torn apart in an IED blast which occurred in an area just 200 meters away from the village which comes under the Kuakonda police station. The police suspects that the blast was planned by the Maoists and about 100 Maoists were involved in this attack. The Maoists warned the villagers not to vote in the coming elections and also put up posters and banners conveying their message.
Later, the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh called for a meeting with the top police officials of the state in Raipur to discuss about the way to deal with this incident.
