As many as 60 women commandos of Chhattisgarh police force are now inducted in the newly established base camp at Potali.
The new camp has been set up in the Maoist stronghold for the personnel of Chhattisgarh police force from Special Task Force, Chhattisgarh Armed Forces and District Reserve Guards.
Last month, 28 Naxals, four of them carrying cash reward on their heads, had surrendered in Dantewada district.
Manglu Madkami, a member of the Maoists "platoon number 22" and Baman Kawasi, part of the Katekalyan local organisation squad, had rewards of Rs 2 lakh each on their heads
All three had gone to carry out some survey for the road construction work from Aranpur-Muler in the strife-torn Dantewada.
As per the trends after four rounds of counting, the Congress candidate was leading by a margin of 4,316 votes against her closest rival from BJP.
The counting of votes in the bypoll held on September 23 in the Naxal-affected seat began at 8 at the DIET campus in Dantewada district headquarters.
Eight boats pressed into action which made over 100 sorties to ensure the voter got their chance to exercise their voting rights.
The final turnout percentage might go up as voters are still standing in queues outside a number of polling booths even after the end of voting.
Prima facie, it seems that Chandraprakash Thakur (33) died of a heart attack but the exact cause of his death will be known after the autopsy, the official from the local administration said.
There are nine candidates in the fray and the counting of votes will be held on September 27.
In 2018, the BJP candidate Bheema Mandavi won the seat by a margin of 2172 votes as against the 9929 NOTA votes.
The bypoll for the Dantewada constituency was necessitated following the death of BJP legislator Bhima Mandavi in a Naxal attack in April this year.
It was more like a cold-blooded murder and the security personnel involved in it should be booked under Section 302 of the IPC, social activist Bela Bhatia told Express.
The BJP cited that it appears the ruling Congress has already accepted its defeat before the upcoming by-poll election.
