The IED-triggered blast occurred at 12:15 pm as per reports
Tuesday's attack comes just about a year after twenty-five personnel of the CRPF were killed March 11, 2017, in the Bheji area of Sukma.
He took to Twitter and said, "India salutes the fearless CRPF personnel who were martyred in the attack in Sukma, Chhattisgarh". According to reports, around 10 jawans were also injured in the explosion, but there was no official confirmation yet, he said.
The CRPF personnel were carrying out an area-domination operation in the area, when their mine-protected vehicle (MPV) was reportedly blown up.
The Maoists used a huge quantity of explosives to blow up the vehicle; multiple improvised explosive devices were concealed under the dirt track, a senior official said. "To those who have been injured, I wish a speedy recovery", he added. It also comes six months after 25 CRPF jawans were slaughtered + in one of the deadliest attacks by Maoist rebels, or Naxalites.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that the party salutes soldier's sacrifice and attacked the BJP for being ignorant towards the attacks on security forces.
"Nine people have died in the attack, the injured are being brought to Jagdalpur or Raipur".
Calling the incident deeply distressing, Rajnath Singh said '"Today's IED blast in Sukma, Chhattisgarh is deeply distressing". Reinforcements were rushed to the spot, soon after the attack. He said that the Maoists had targeted security personnel because they are angry over the developmental work being carried out in the area. All the personnel were killed due to the impact of the blast even as many were thrown out of the vehicle, officials told PTI. Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh said that he was "overwhelmed with grief" with the loss of the nine officials.
The martyrs have been identified as Ajay Kumar Yadav, Jitendra Singh, Shabit Ku Sharma, Manoj Singh, RKS Tomar, Manoranjan Lenka, Dharmendra Singh, Chandra H.S. and Laxman.
