Maoists ambushed two CRPF teams in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh and killed 25 CRPF personnel and injured 7 jawans.It was the biggest attack by Maoist leader Hidma on CRPF.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh and CM Dr.Raman Singh rushed to the spot to condole the martyrs and boost the morale of CRPF in fight against Maoists.
This attack by naxals is the clear cut failure of intelligence inputs on the ground. Standard operating procedure was not followed. State STF and Cobra Commandos were not with CRPF. Even locals were involved in reiki of the movement of CRPF.
PM Narendra Modi has said that sacrifices made by CRPF will not go in vein.Naxal attack on CRPF in Sukma is a heinous crime.
