The Home Minister said contrary to reports, there was no prior specific intelligence input about the Naxal attack in Sukma.
“This is the second similar incident. We have full confidence that the security forces will do the needful to avoid such incidents and arrest those involved in the attack,” he said. Asked about deployment of forces during the general elections, Shinde said the Naxal problem exists in Odisha, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh as well as some other states. “We will also have to deploy forces in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka. We have to provide forces as per the security requirements,” he said. (PTI)
