Wreath laying ceremony of soldiers killed in Sukma Naxal attack

However, Dinakaran said that when the commanding officier explained that Maoists could attack a second time, the Sukma S.P. made a decision to move without the CRPF's assistance.

Raipur, Mar 13 (PTI) �As the CRPF lost nine of its men in the latest Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh, the Congress today accused the Raman Singh government of failing to curb the Maoist menace in the state.

CRPF constable Manoranjan Lenka, among nine troopers of the force killed in a Maoist ambush in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district on Tuesday, rejoined duty a day ago after completing his father's funeral rites in Odisha, according to his family.

"Our jawans sacrificed their lives while fighting a tough battle".

Explaining the events leading up to the second attack within four hours of the first, Deputy Inspector General of CRPF M. Dinakaran told IANS: "Generally, we never take the same routes after such attacks". Therefore, reinforcement was rushed to the spot from both directions, he said. The three CRPF personnel hailed from Uttar Pradesh. He said that Naxals plant improvised explosive devices (IEDs) under the ground at various places to disrupt construction work, which pose serious challenge to security forces.

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

To a query, the minister denied the probability of deploying the Army to tackle Naxals in the Bastar region, which is considered as the hotbed of the ultras.

The security men were conducting an area-domination operation in the forest of Kistaram when the Maoists blew up the CRPF's mine-protected vehicle, he said.

On Tuesday too, CRPF's elite CoBRA commandos had averted an ambush around 8 am in Palodi area, which is close to Andhra-Telangana border, but another team of 212th battalion, which was moving in a convoy of motorcycles and two MPVs, was targeted using an IED.
