“22 security personnel have lost their lives in the Naxal attack in Sukma-Bijapur in Chhattisgarh,” Bijapur Superintendent of Police, Kamlochan Kashyap said. Chhattisgarh police said, about 31 were injured in an encounter in Bijapur on Saturday.
Director-General of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) Kuldeep Singh, who is in Chhattisgarh to monitor the situation after the Naxal attack, said on Sunday that there was absolutely no intelligence or operational failure in the operation. Singh said that about 25-30 Naxalites were also killed, though the exact number has not been ascertained.
“There is no shied in saying that there was any intelligence or operational failure,” DG CRPF told THE AI. If it was some intelligence failure, the army does not go for operation. And if some operational failures fail, so many Naxalites are not killed. ‘
On the Naxal casualties in the encounter, the DG said, “Three tractors were used by Naxalites to take the bodies of the injured and the deceased from the site. It is difficult to say what is the exact number of Naxalites killed in the operation, but it will not be less than 25-30. ‘
