NEW DELHI: At least eight CRPF personnel were killed today in an attack by Naxalites in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district, officials said, reported PTI.

The attack comes almost six months after 25 CRPF jawans were slaughtered in one of the deadliest attacks by Maoist rebels, or Naxalites. Last September, around 300-400 Leftist insurgents ambushed and outgunned 99 troopers deployed to help with the construction of a road through the Maoist stronghold of Sukma in Chhattisgarh.

Earlier last year in March, 12 CRPF personnel of a road opening party were ambushed in Sukma.

Still, security forces have had some success deaing with such attacks. As many as 300 Naxals were reportedly killed in separate encounters with security forces in Chhattisgarh in the last two years, said state home minister Ramsewak Paikra to the
state Legislative Assembly last month.

Earlier this month, the CRPF for the first time set up three permanent camps in the Maoist hotbed of Abujhmadh forests in Chhattisgarh to launch ‘surgical’ operations against the ultras, a year after it lost 37 personnel in two ambushes, reported PTI.

The paramilitary force, along with contingents of the state police, has set up three bases in the dense and remote jungles of the 4,000 sq km region which essentially means ‘abujh’ (unknown) and ‘madh’ (hill).

Till now, the security forces used to undertake patrols inside the Abujhmadh jungle area in the Bastar region, camp there for few days and come back as they had no support system to stay in the jungle for long.

To make their presence felt in the area, the first camp, identified as ‘P’, has been established in close vicinity of the Indravati river.

Officials privy to the development said the strength of each camp was about 100 personnel.

The camps have been created as part of the ‘Operation Madh’ (Abujhmadh) being carried out by the CRPF and other security forces for the last few years to target Naxal cadres who hide or move in this area.
