Ganesh idol falls, lens on Reds

A 1,110-year-old Ganesha idol, located atop Dholkal hill in Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh, fell from a height of 13,000 feet and broke into pieces in the dense forest area dominated by the Maoists. Experts and conservationists term this a major blow to archaeology.

Bastar police is not ruling out the possibility of Maoists pushing the idol down the hill to destroy it in an attempt to stop development works and prevent visitors in the area.
