Army moves into Maoist area in Chhattisgarh
Raipur:  For the first time, an Army brigade has moved into Maoist-dominated area of Chhattisgarh - a move that could be a psychological hit for the rebels.

The 71 Brigade of the Indian Army under Central Command has moved to Narayanpur in Chhattisgarh. However, the deployment, Army says, is strictly for training purposes.

Narayanpur adjoins Amujhmarh forest area and is completely dominated by the Maoists.

The Home Ministry has formalised the rules of engagement in which the Army has been asked not to engage Maoists; they can only fire in self-defence.
