    Raipur:A day after the after blood-stained uniforms and shoes of some of the CRPF personnel who were killed in the Sukma Naxal attack were found in a garbage bin on the hospital premises, the blame game has begun.
    DIG, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) called the act a mischief by some political parties to seek advantage. "Congress workers came and took all uniforms to Ghadi Chowk and started protest and refused to give to local police. It is a mischief by some political parties," he said. He also assured probe into the incident and added that they have full respect for the martyrs.
    The hospital staff, too, tried to pass the buck over the incident claiming that no one came to collect the uniforms. "It is the duty of the attendants of the deceased to collect their belongings but no officer from the CRPF was present during the post-mortem yesterday. In fact, no one came to collect the belongings until this morning," Dean of Dr BR Ambedkar Memorial hospital Dr Vivek Chaudhary said.
    District Congress chief Vikas Upadhyay and others visited Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Memorial Hospital and took away the uniforms and other belongings of the martyrs to the Congress office.
    "We collected four sets of blood-stained uniforms and 10 pairs of shoes and carried those to Congress Bhawan. Later, CRPF officials came here and we handed over all the belongings to them," he added.
    Meanwhile, the Home Ministry has sought a report from Chhattisgarh government over the incident. "I have spoken to the Prime Minister and have asked full inquiry into the incident," Home Minister Rajnath Singh said.
    Fourteen CRPF personnel, including two officers, were killed on Monday in a Naxal attack in the Chintagufa region of South Bastar's Sukma district.

    Emotions aside, these uniforms are bio-hazards and must be disposed off immediately.
