This is the first time the rebels have also given a call for shutdown in Madhya Pradesh.
The other five states include Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Maharashtra and Telangana.
The band call is intended to offer tribute to their comrades killed near villages of Boriya, Kasnasur and Nainar in Gadchiroli the fake encounters .
The north Bastar Division Committee and north sub zonal bureau of CPI (Maoist) have given a call for bandh. They have nailed posters and banners at various places seeking the support of masses in support of the bandh call.
Last Sunday the Maoists had killed 7 Chhattisgarh policemen triggering a powerful improvised explosive device (IED) blast at Dantewada.
In recent weeks they had set ablaze several heavy vehicles including JCB loaders engaged in the road construction works in different districts in south Chhattisgarh.
