Abstract

The Salwa Judum campaign in Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh has led to the wanton "militarisation" of society over there. A fact-finding team set up by the Committee Against Violence on Women toured this war zone and found that adivasi women have not only been forcibly dislocated and robbed of their belongings, but have been sexually abused and tortured.
