Naxals threaten locals to join them in Dantewada

The Naxals are threatening people in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district and have apparently asked them to send one member from each family to join them. Here, over the past few months, several clashes have been reported between the security forces and the Naxals. In order to beef up their army, the Naxals are now apparently forcing villagers to join them. However, the state police have denied any such demand from the Naxals.
