Nine CRPF personnel martyred in Maoist attack in Sukma

"The Maoist attack in Sukma, Chhattisgarh in which 9 CRPF jawans lost their lives is tragic". The following incident took place while the teams were patrolling in the area using their mine-protected vehicle (MPV), which was also blown up by the Naxalites.

Sources in the force confirmed nine jawans were martyred in the attack and that another eight soldiers are extremely critical.

Sukma, considered one of the worst insurgency-hit regions of the state, has witnessed several dreaded attacks on security forces in the past, particularly in summer season during which rebels carry out an annual tactical counter offensive campaign.

On February 18, 2018, two security force personnel were killed and six injured in a gun battle with Maoists in Sukma district, the Indian Express reported on February 18, 2018.

The attack came 11 days after 10 Naxals were killed in a forest area located on an inter-state border between Telangana and Chhattisgarh by joint contingents of police.

Reports pouring in from Chhattisgarh said a gunfight broke out in the area during morning between specially trained COBRA force and Naxals and the vehicle that was targeted was a reinforcement rushing to the area.

The security men were conducting an area-domination operation in the forest of Kistaram when the Maoists blew up the CRPF's mine-protected vehicle, he said. "To those who have been injured, I wish a speedy recovery". "I spoke to the CRPF director general regarding the Sukma incident and asked him to leave for Chhattisgarh", Singh tweeted.

"Endangering India's national security is a direct effect of the Modi government's aimless, irresolute and inconsistent polices".
