  • Naxal attack in Sukma, 9 CRPF jawans killed and 6 injured

Officials said the incident occurred around 12:30 pm along the district's Kistaram-Palodi road when troops of the CRPF's 212th battalion were out on an operation. The names of the jawans killed: ASI RKS Tomar, Constable Ajay KR Yadav, Constable Manoranjan Lanka, Constable Jitendra Singh, Constable Shobhit Sharma, Constable Manoj Singh, Constable Dharmendra Singh, Constable Chandra HS, Head constable Lakshman. The injured personnel are being evacuated by helicopter to Raipur.

The security men were conducting an area-domination operation in the forest of Kistaram when the Maoists blew up the CRPFs mine-protected vehicle, he said.

The red rebels used a lot of explosives to blow up the vehicle, the official said. "I spoke to DG CRPF regarding the Sukma incident and asked him to leave for Chhattisgarh", he tweeted. "Extra force has reached the spot, there is no firing at present".

Officials added that the first encounter between the two sides took place at 8 am and later this contingent was targeted by the Maoists.

He said, the IED blast in Sukma is deeply distressing.

Home minister Rajnath Singh expressed his condolences to the families of the personnel who were killed.

Upping the ante against the Centre, the Congress said the former had failed to control Left-wing extremism with its "aimless" policy on national security which had created disquiet internally and on the borders, and said the latest Maoist attack on a CRPF team exposed the government's hollow claims on ending Naxalism.

Earlier on the day, Maoists had staged a similar attack but they fled after the CRPF personnel retaliated the fire.

The incident happens around a year after a dozen jawans were killed in a similar ambush in the Sukma district.
