Naxalites kill BRO engineer in Nagpur

Naxals strongly resist devolpment activities in the areas they dominate. They are afraid that development and the changes it brings might lead to them losing influence, so it is not unusual to see Naxals blow up railway tracks and blocking the construction of roads.
