Sports to defy Maoist insurgency in West Bengal


A thrilling occasion to demonstrate the talent in sports! 46 tribal women football teams participated in a mega soccer tournament in West Bengal's Maoist-infested Purulia District. Organised under the aegis of local police, the initiative was to boost the morale of tribal girls and explore their hidden skills and talent. Years of maoist-led insurgency have affected the tribal villagers severely and police want to boost up their confidence.
