The incident took place two days after 15 ultras were gunned down in an encounter with security forces in the neighbouring Sukma district.
A big group of Naxals stopped two buses which were heading towards Raipur from Kirandul and asked the passengers to get down. The ultras then set the buses on fire.
No occupant from the three vehicles was hurt, he said.
A police team has been sent to the spot, the official said, adding that police were expecting this kind of reaction from the naxals in response to the death of their 15 cadres in the August 6 encounter.
