In the following we want to give a short brief on (suspected) actions carried out by the People´s Liberation Guerilla Army (PLGA) led by the Communist Party of India (Maoists) in the ongoing People´s War in India.

The reactionary forces were ambushed by an uncounted number of gunmen in the evening while approaching to the forest, in the following encounter two police forces were wounded, one of them seriously. The attackers managed to retreat without any losses before the arriving of reinforcements of the old state. 1


On February 7, anofficer of the Special Task Forces (STF) was killed by the detonation of an improvised explosive device (IED), planted by suspected Maoists next to Peddagellur village near the capital of Chhattisgarh, Raipur.
