Naxal attack in Sukma: Two CRPF personnel injured

Not even a month after the deadly Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh's Sukma which killed 25 CRPF personnel, the rebels launched another ambush on May 19, injuring at least two jawans.

The IED blast took place in the morning, when a team of CRPF's 2nd battalion were carrying out anti-Maoist operations in a forest area in Kerlapal, near Pariya village.

Additional forces were deployed immediately.

On April 24, 25 personnel were killed and many others wounded when Naxals opened fire on troops supervising road construction work in the insurgency-hit area.
