Ahead of the 'People's Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA) week' observed by Naxals, the rebels blocked a road by laying trees in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district on Thursday morning, a police official said. Naxal banners and leaflets asking people to support the 'PLGA week', to be observed from December 2 to 8, were found on the blocked Allapalli-Bhamragadh road in the district, located around 170 km from here, he said.

"The road is located two km from Permili near Arendha gate. Naxals placed trees on the road to block it," he said.
