Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh Dr Raman Singh has expressed deep condolence on sad demise of six personnel of District Police in the landmine blast done by naxalites in Dantewada district of the state. Dr Singh has empathized with the grief-stricken families of these martyrs and has strongly condemned this naxal attack. Dr Singh has prayed for speedy health recovery of the injured personnel and directed the officials to ensure their best possible medical treatment.

Chief Minister said- our police personnel have sacrificed their lives while guarding the road construction site. Their sacrifice will always be remembered. It is known that personnel of Chhattisgarh Armed Forces and District Police Force were on duty to safeguard the road construction work from Cholnar to Kirandul, when their vehicle was blown off by IED explosive installed by naxalites. Five personnel died on spot, whereas two injured personnel were immediately admitted to NMDC’s Hospital in Kirandul, where one of the personnel succumbed to the injuries while undergoing treatment. Among the martyred personnel, three were from Chhattisgarh Armed Force and three from District Police Force.

Chief Minister said that it was a cowardly act of naxalites. This proves that naxalites do not want villagers and tribal people of this district to have access to even basic facilities such as roads. This incident has exposed their anti-people anti-development mindset. Incidents like these cannot dampen the courage and determination of our police force and officials, employees and labourers associated with road construction. We are committed to provide all-weather transportation facility by developing network of roads in entire Bastar division including Dantewada.
