Chhattisgarh: ITBP and Chhattisgarh Police joint party come under Naxal ambush while on their way to polling booth

The Naxal attack took place at 4:30 am in the morning when the party was moving on foot toward Dadwang for polling. No casualty has been reported.

The Indo-Tibet Border Police (ITBP) and Chhattisgarh Police joint party came under a Naxal ambush earlier this morning. They were on their way to a polling booth near Farasgaon, Narayanpur.

As per reports, Naxals triggered an IED which was followed by an ambush by firing on the 60-member team. The ITBP successfully managed to break the ambush.

The Naxal attack took place at 4:30 am in the morning when the party was moving on foot toward Dadwang for polling. No casualty has been reported.

On April 9, two days before the polling began, five persons, including a BJP MLA, lost their lives when Naxal terrorists ambushed the convoy of BJP in Dantewada in Bastar region Chhattisgarh. BJP MLA Bhima Mandavi, his driver and three security personnel died in the attack. Maoists had planted an IED on the road which was triggered when the convoy reached the point. The IED was so powerful that it ripped apart the bulletproof vehicle in which the BJP leader was travelling. After the blast, people from the other cars came out, and the Maoists fired on them, who were hiding in the jungle. It triggered gunfire between the Maoists and security personnel in the convoy.
