People bid farewell to CRPF jawans killed by naxals

"It's time to end their menace", the CM added.

A large number of people on Wednesday bade a tearful farewell to Central Reserve Police Force jawans Ramkishan Singh Tomar and Jitendra Singh who laid down their lives during Maoist attack in Sukma forests in Chhattisgarh on Tuesday. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, tweeted the Maoist attack is "deeply distressing".

Clarifying that he did not want to enter into a blame game, Dinakaran said: "We are still waiting for a final report of the whole incident which will be prepared by a DIG-rank CRPF official". Therefore, reinforcement was rushed to the spot from both directions, he said. To a question on yesterday's Naxal attack, he said there was no lack of intelligence inputs.

In the last one month, CRPF is learnt to have opened four to five permanent camps in three Naxal hotbeds- the1,200 square km long Bastar-Sukma region, 2,000 sq km AOB (Andhra Odisha border) and the 4,500 sq km Abujmaad forest area.

IEA bumps up 2018 oil demand forecast

Besides focusing on modernisation of the security forces, the government has also been looking for the latest technology on the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detection techniques, Ahir said.

On arrival, the martyr's body was placed on a stage with full honours.

Nine CRPF personnel were killed and two others injured after Naxals blew up their mine protected vehicle (MPV) while they were patrolling on the Kistaram-Palodi route in Sukma. Officials said that new CRPF camps inside the deep jungle and inability to cause damage to security forces in firing ambushes has "frustrated" the Naxals, hence they are using IEDs to target the troops. The victims were from to the CRPF's 212th battalion.
