Suspected Maoist rebels ambushed a road opening party of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on Saturday and killed at least 12 troopers in insurgency-hit Sukma district of Chhattisgarh.
The attack took place at 9.10am near Kotacheru under Bheji police station in Sukma – one of the most Maoist affected districts in the country. The Maoists also looted 10 weapons from the dead personnel in the area around 450km away from the state capital.
“Troops of A/E 219 battalion were on a road opening duty and providing security for road construction in the area when they were ambushed. The ambush was followed up by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack,” a CRPF official said in New Delhi.
Five troopers were injured in the attack. Three of them were stated to be critical initially.
The injured were brought to Raipur and admitted to a government hospital, the official added. One of the critically injured later died, taking the toll to 12.
Two Maoists were also killed in the counter attack by the security forces, said a senior police.
Besides weapons, the Maoists also looted two VHF radio sets that the CRPF team was carrying. The CRPF party consisted of 112 personnel.

Additional forces have been rushed to the spot and the bodies of the dead soldiers are being retrieved, he added.
The home minister said that the Centre was in direct communication with the state government. In a series of tweets, Rajnath Singh said that those who perpetrated the incident will be brought to justice.

Dantewada attack was Maoists revenge

CRPF-injuredThe outlawed Communist Party of India (Maoist) has claimed responsibility for the killing of seven Central Reserve Police Force personnel in an IED explosion in the Dantewada district of Bastar last month. “The Malewara attack on the CRPF was a fitting reply to the exploitative Modi-Raman Singh regime and revenge for our party’s martyrs. The attack was a part of our PLGA’s (People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army) response to the government of Chhattisgarh’s mission 2016 against us,” said a statement issued by the south sub zonal bureau of the CPI (Maoist).
“The Chhattisgarh government has been running a campaign called ‘Mission 2016’ to flush out Maoists from Bastar. In the name of this mission, the security forces are indulging in attacks on the villages of Bastar. Local civilians are being harassed and are being branded as ‘warrantee Maoists’.
“People of Bastar are being stashed in jails under fraud cases. In the name of encounter killings, local tribals are being killed in cold blood. Since January this year, more than 50 local civilians of Bastar and our party cadres have been killed in fake encounters,” alleged the banned outfit.
