In a recent incident along the Sukma-Bijapur border in Chhattisgarh, at least five CRPF commandos sustained injuries during an exchange of fire with Naxals. The confrontation occurred while a joint security team was conducting a search operation near Tekalgudem village. One jawan suffered a bullet injury, and others sustained minor wounds, prompting immediate evacuation from the forest, according to the Bastar Range Inspector General of Police.
The clash unfolded during a routine search operation, emphasizing the persistent security challenges faced by personnel in the region. The injured jawans are undergoing necessary medical attention after the encounter. The incident highlights the ongoing efforts of security forces to combat Naxal activities in Chhattisgarh.

Discovery and Defusal of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs):

Earlier on the same day, security forces successfully thwarted a potential tragedy by discovering two improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada district. Acting on a tip-off, the police located and defused the explosive devices, weighing 5 kg and 3 kg respectively. The IEDs were strategically placed on dirt tracks, with the intention of targeting security personnel during their routine patrolling activities.

“The explosives were planted on dirt tracks to target security personnel who pass through the area during patrolling. The bombs were later defused by the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS). A major tragedy has been averted,” stated a police officer, underscoring the significance of timely intervention.

The incident serves as a reminder of the ongoing security threats faced by law enforcement in regions affected by Naxal insurgency. The successful neutralization of the improvised explosive devices underscores the importance of intelligence-based operations in preventing potential disasters. The injured CRPF commandos are expected to recover, and security measures remain heightened in the area to address any further threats.
