Bhopal: Chhattisgarh's new Director General of Police (DGP) said the law and order situation in his State has improved and the Naxalite problem was very much under control.

About the Naxal menace, the DGP said there was a need to bring people who have taken recourse to violence into the national mainstream with the help of all those who believe in democracy.
