Maoist Attack: 9 CRPF personnel killed in Chhattisgarh

"My heartfelt condolences to the families of those personnel who lost their lives in Sukma blast".

The incident occurred in Kistaram area of Sukma. Commenting on the health condition of five injured jawans, the doctors attending them claimed that three of the jawans are said to be in a critical state. The camps have been created as part of the "Operation Madh" (Abujhmadh) being carried out by the CRPF and other security forces for the last few years to target Naxal cadres who hide or move in this area.

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.

"Seeing the response of 208 CoBRA, the Maoists initially fled away". "There have been 23 major naxalite attacks after demonetisation in which 97 security personnel were martyred and 121 civilians killed". He added that extra forces have reached the location and there is now no firing going on.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the country salutes the nine CRPF personnel and stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of the bravehearts. "To those who have been injured, I wish a speedy recovery". "I spoke to DG @crpfindia regarding the Sukma incident and asked him to leave for Chhattisgarh".

The Congress blamed the Centre's "aimless, irresolute and inconsistent policies" for the attack.

A senior CRPF official in Raipur said the patrol squad had launched the search-cum-area domination operation from Kistaram towards Palodi, located around 500km from here, in view of the visit of Sukma Superintendent of Police Abhishek Meena in Palodi on Tuesday.

25 CRPF soldiers were killed and seven others were critically injured in the attack by Maoists in Sukma, which was one of the deadliest in recent years.

The blast was allegedly triggered by the left-wing extremists in retaliation for the killing of 10 of their comrades by the security forces earlier this month.
