Honoring the Sacrifice: Nation mourns the loss of 10 brave policemen and driver in Chhattisgarh Blast

A Maoist IED blast killed ten policemen and a driver in Dantewada, Chhattisgarh, on Wednesday. During an anti-Naxalite operation, the District Reserve Guard (DRG) was returning from the field when the blast occurred. Left-wing extremists are countered in Chhattisgarh by the DRG.

Upon receiving intelligence about Maoist activity in an area within the boundaries of Aranpur Police Station, the DRG was dispatched from Dantewada for an anti-Naxalite operation. Near Raipur, the state capital, the area is 450 km away. During the team’s return from the operation, a blast occurred.

In a tragic incident, ten policemen and a driver lost their lives. Chhattisgarh government has been assured of all possible assistance from the central government. Additionally, he expressed his condolences to Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel.

Left-wing extremism is a constant threat in the region. Although the government has taken various measures to curb this menace, these incidents continue to occur. Citizens’ safety and security must be ensured through more effective government strategies.

Their contribution to the nation’s security must not be forgotten, and the sacrifices they make must be acknowledged. We must recognize and reward the bravery and compensation of the families of the deceased.

It is a reminder that the battle against left-wing extremism demands sustained effort, and we mourn the loss of ten police personnel and a driver. Support should be provided to those on the front lines of this fight by the government.
