Naxalite attacks are particularly high in the summers, an analysis by the Intelligence Bureau has shown.
It is during the summers that naxalites tend to up the ante and an analysis has shown this pattern over the past several years. This is because the naxals carry out their annual tactical counter offensive campaigns during the summer in a bid to step up offensive activities, an official who has handled the naxal problem tells OneIndia. The security forces are always on a high state of alert during this period. However in the Dantewada attack that took place on Wednesday, the Intelligence looked choppy and the standard operating procedure had not been followed.
