Law makers from districts close to the Chhattisgarh-Telangana border were asked by the state home department to move to safe places and to not venture into villages after Maoists started retaliatory moves following the death of 10 of their comrades in a recent encounter with the security forces.

Maoists torched three buses and tippers bound for Telangana in an act of revenge for the Charla encounter.

The Maoists also shot dead one person, believed to be an informer, in Bhadradri district of Telangana.

A TSRTC bus was burnt by Maoists near Kuththi village in Dornapal of Sukma district in Chhattisgarh after they asked all the passengers to get alight from the bus.  

The Maoists also torched two more private vehicles in the bordering state.

The incidents coupled with a warning by Maoists that they would intensify attacks on Telangana law makers, forced police to urge them to move to Hyderabad for the time being.

The home department has also decided to procure a landmine and bullet-proof bus for Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.
