The arrest of some tribals in Sukma has snowballed into a major agitation as several thousand tribals have begun a march towards the district headquarters.
Led by AAP leader Soni Sori and other party workers, the tribals also held a rally in Jagdalpur before leaving towards Sukma.
The tension began after the Tongpal police arrested one Muchaki Hidma, a cook in a local government school, and 10 other residents of Hamirgarh village last week when they were sleeping in their homes.
