Two CRPF jawans were wounded in a powerful explosion caused by an improvised explosive device (IED) in the vibrant region of Bijapur , Chhattisgarh. The incident occurred on Monday, adding another distressing chapter to the ongoing conflict between security forces and Naxal insurgents. Promptly, the injured soldiers were swiftly transported to the local hospital, where they received immediate treatment before being transferred to Raipur for further medical attention.
According to Chhattisgarh Police, the IED blast was orchestrated by Naxalites who strategically planted the explosive device to inflict harm upon the CRPF 85 battalion. This heinous act of violence underscores the persistent threat faced by security personnel in the area. The region's authorities have confirmed that the incident falls under the jurisdiction of Gangalur police station, further intensifying the urgency to address the growing menace.
Tragically, this recent incident follows a devastating event in April, where ten security personnel and a driver lost their lives in another IED blast perpetrated by Maoists in the neighboring district of Dantewada. The previous attack occurred as a team from the state police's District Reserve Guard (DRG) was returning from a mission aimed at countering Naxalite activities.
These alarming occurrences highlight the precarious security situation prevailing in the region, necessitating a comprehensive strategy to safeguard the lives of both security Forces and civilians. It is imperative to prioritize the restoration of peace and stability in Chhattisgarh, enabling its residents to live without constant fear and ensuring a brighter future for the state.
