Gadchiroli: Naxals torched 40 trucks of Surajgad’s Llyod Metal Company to protest against the project of the company in the Etapalli tehsil.
It may be mentioned the mining project has been given to the Surajgad Llyod Metals Company. The project spreads over 350 acres and the iron ore mined from here is sent outside for processing.
The localites are opposed to this. The residents here feel that the processing of the ore should be done in Etapalli itself but the Llyod company is against this. To protest against this the Naxalites burnt down 40 trucks. This has incurred a heavy loss to the company.
