Gadchiroli,: Police camps have reached areas that were once considered Naxal strongholds in Gadchiroli and soon the menace will be eradicated with the support of citizens, Maharashtra Director General of Police Rashmi Shukla said on Saturday.

The state's first woman DGP was speaking during her visit to Gardewada, an area once deeply affected by Left Wing Extremism, where a police post was set up recently.

"Due to Naxal activities, this area was away from the mainstream. However, the police department has removed their fear from the minds of the people by setting up a police post in Gardewada," she said.

The state government is reaching out to people from the region with various welfare schemes, she added.

"We will win the hearts of the people and with their support will eradicate the menace of Naxalism from here," Shukla asserted.

She was accompanied by Joint Commissioner (State Intelligence Department) Shirish Jain, Gadchiroli Special IG (Anti Naxal Operations) Sandip Patil, Gadchiroli Deputy Inspector General Ankit Goyal and Superintendent of Police Nilotpal.
