New Delhi, Oct 26 (ANI): The Government on Monday strongly condemned the CPI (Maoist) attack on four CISF personnel in Bacheli in Chhattisgarh.
In a statement issued by the Home Ministry, the Government condemned the attack saying, "The Government of India strongly condemns this unprovoked and heinous attack by the CPI (Maoist) on a public sector security force that was on a routine patrol in an area falling under the jurisdiction of a public sector corporation.
What is the motive behind the attack on a police force that provides security to the National Minerals Development Corporation (NMDC)? What is the message that the CPI (Maoist) intends to convey? These are questions that the Government would like to put not only to the CPI (Maoist) but also to those who speak on their behalf and chastise the government."
On Sunday, four CISF personnel (one sub-inspector, one head constable and two constables) were killed and two constables critically injured in a planned landmine blast in the mines area of the NMDC in Bacheli in Chhattisgarh.
After exploding the landmine, the CPI (Maoist) fired upon the patrol party.
The patrol party fired back and the CPI (Maoist) fled the scene after an exchange of fire. (ANI)
