New Delhi: We bring you the exclusive picture of Naxal leader Hidma who is said to be behind the CRPF ambush. This is one of the deadliest attack on Forces in last seven years. Hidma is considered a very dangerous Naxal leader.
The deadly attack took place on late Monday afternoon. The jawans were there to provide security at the road construction site. The maoists have always opposed this as they feel better connectivity will make their hideouts more vulnerable to the security forces. No doubt this was a great intelligence failure.
In one of the deadliest attacks, 300 to 400 heavily armed Maoists, women included, ambushed a CRPF contingent in a forested patch in Chhattisgarh on Monday, killing 25 troopers and escaping with their AK-47 assault rifles.
