Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh: Four CRPF jawans killed

As security cover was eased in Bastar after the elections, the Maoists killed four CRPF personnel and injured three others on Wednesday morning in Bijapur district. In their first major attack since elections, the Maoists assaulted forces that were part of a road opening party for CRPF's proposed civic action programme in Cheramangi village.

The deceased include Amitabh Mishra, Madan Lal Akhe, Digant Bayan and Dilip Kumar. All belonged to the 168 Battalion of CRPF. "The team was deployed to clear the area between Nukanpal and Dharavaram. Our forces immediately retaliated and we expect some Naxals were also killed," said RK Vij, ADG (Naxal Ops).

The firing continued for over thirty minutes, as Maoists also exploded a pressure bomb in the area.

In May this year, heavily-armed Maoists had ambushed a convoy of Congress leaders in Chhattisgarh, killing 27 people – including senior party leader Mahendra Karma, state party chief Nand Kumar Patel and former Union Minister V C Shukla.

Recently, security forces had averted a possible landmine explosion by defusing two IEDs weighing 50 kg in Dantewada area of poll-bound Chhattisgarh.

After the strenuous task to ensure election security, there must have been some complacency wherein the Maoist took advantage.

The CRPF has come long way in MP and are doing a great job quite well inspite of handicaps.

A very sad incident.

The CRPF will surely make the Maoists pay for this.
