Dantewada, Chhattisgarh, Aug 9: Naxals set ablaze two buses and a truck at Bailadila in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada District last evening, police said.

The incident comes in the wake of a recent encounter with police in Sukma in which 15 Naxals were shot dead. The buses were heading from Bailadila to Jagdalpur when the ultras stopped them, forced passengers to alight and set them afire.

Later, a truck coming from behind was also halted and set aflame. The rebels left behind some banners and posters on the spot. (UNI)
