Sukma attack: Tributes paid to martyred CRPF men

Oriya jawan among 9 killed

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has declared a financial help of Rs 25 lakh each to the families of three CRPF jawans belonging to the state, who were killed in a Maoist attack Chhattisgarh's Sukma district.

The attack comes almost a year after 25 CRPF personnel were killed in a gunbattle with 300 Maoists in the same district.

The CRPF headquarters in New Delhi said that the Maoists were initially repulsed by the CRPF's Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) at 8am.

The CRPF personnel were martyred on Tuesday when a landmine blast blew up their patrolling vehicle in Sukma district. Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, director general, CRPF, who had returned from Chhattisgarh on Tuesday morning itself, told TOI that "Naxals have been restricted to a certain jungle area and our troops are entering their den".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh have expressed their condolences over the incident, and the Centre has been thinking seriously to ensure the security of its jawans and avoid such incidents in future, the Minister of State for Home Affairs said.

Senior intelligence officials said Sukma, which was adjacent to 3,900sq.km of territory with no security presence, would continue to remain the centre of Maoist, or Naxal, activity.
