Bastar (Chhattisgarh): The residents of Bastar District in Chhattisgarh have filed a complaint against Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) professors in Darbha Police Station, alleging that they have been antagonized by some of the faculty members against the government.

In the complaint, the villagers have also alleged that they have been asked to support the Naxals.

In their complaint letter, the villagers said that around four to five people from JNU came to their village and had a conversation with them.

“Those people told us, that the police and the administration will not do anything for you. They told us that therefore, we should do as the Naxals say. They also told us to bring back the people who have surrendered before the police,” the villagers said in the complaint.

“The people (who came from Delhi) also told us not to allow the police to set up their camps in the village,” they added.

The villagers have, therefore, requested the administration not to allow such people who are trying to brainwash them and destroy the happy environment which is their in the district.

Bastar is one of the insurgency hit areas of the state where Naxals have a strong hold. (ANI)
