Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday saluted the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel, who were killed in a powerful improvised explosive device (IED) blast in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district.

"All Maoists were in uniform".

April 2010's Dantewada attack: The insurgents from the Communist Party of India (Maoist) ambushed and brutally killed 76 CRPF policemen near Chintalnar village in Dantewada district.

The rebels used a lot of explosives to blow up the vehicle, the official said. "As per information received 9 CRPF personnel attained martyrdom and 3 are injured", he added.

Suspected Maoists blew up a mine-protected vehicle of the CRPF in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district, killing eight and injuring others.

UN officials blast Facebook over spread of Rohingya hate speech
The UN's Special Rapporteur on Myanmar also said that the Rohingya crisis in the Rakhine State "bears the hallmarks of genocide". Lee said that Facebook was used as the toll by the state government to disseminate information to the public.

The IED-triggered blast occurred at 12:15 pm, as per reports.

Expressing his condolences to the families of the nine CRPF personnel killed in Tuesday's Naxal attack at Sukma, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet that the incident reflected the worsening internal security situation and "flawed" policies. In 2015, 59 security personnel were killed in a total of 1,089 incidences related to left-wing extremism, followed by 65 in 2016 and 75 deaths in 2017. From the injured, 3 are reportedly in critical condition. It also comes six months after 25 CRPF jawans were slaughtered + in one of the deadliest attacks by Maoist rebels, or Naxalites.

The chief minister condemned the attack, describing it as an act of cowardice. "Maoists feared that the development works in Bastar will uproot them from the region, therefore, they committed such a cowardly and shameful attack", he said. Rajnath Singh said, "My heartfelt condolences to the families of those personnel who lost their lives in Sukma blast". I pray for the speedy recovery of the injured jawans.

"Every time there is a Naxal attack, the Chief Minister (of Chhattisgarh) promises some tough action, but nothing concrete has been done to stop these attacks". All the personnel were killed due to the impact of the blast even as many were thrown out of the vehicle, officials told PTI.
