Kuakonda block of Dantewada district, south Chhattisgarh. The village is home to Madia tribals who
live in five paras (hamlets) of the village. On 6 January 2015, Bheema Nuppo (35 years-old, s/o

reports of the case and developments on the ground raised several questions that called for an on-the-spot investigation. Our team of three members, undertook an investigation into the incident on 18-19
