According to Abhishek Pallav, Superintendent of Police, Dantewada, Mudami played a significant role in bringing people in Palnar to the mainstream. This angered the Naxals. “We used to keep getting the info that they are planning to strike back,” he said.

The attack on Mulani came on the heels of the Naxal attack in Bijapur in which Naxals blew up a bunker vehicle carrying CRPF personnel. 4 CRPF jawans lost their lives and 2 were critically injured in that attack.

Last month, The Maoists had warned the voters to boycott the assembly polls, scheduled to be held in two phases next month by putting up posters and throwing pamphlets in Bastar and Kanker region of Chhattisgarh.
