"The incident took place in the core Maoist area where firing happens with or without intelligence inputs". 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.

"I bow to each and every security personnel who attained martyrdom while serving the nation", Singh tweeted.

The injured jawans were being airlifted and three helicopters will soon reach Raipur, said D.M. Awasthi, Special DG (Naxal).

The attack comes days after security forces killed 10 Maoists in an encounter in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur District bordering Telangana. "Seeing the response of the 208 CoBRA, the Maoists fled". "We are airlifting the injured from the spot", he said.

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. I pray for the speedy recovery of the injured jawans.
