CRPF unit that lost 7 men in Naxal attack nabs ultras in C’garh
Undeterred by the deadly Naxal attack that killed seven of their colleagues last week, troops of the 230th CRPF battalion have nabbed six Maoists from the worst Maoist violence-affected Sukma district of Chhattisgarh.
Officials said a special squad from the unit apprehended the Naxals identified as Madvi Muka (22), Madkami Deva (24), Madkami Ganga (24), Chinga (25), Budram (30) and Sanna (28) from the Nelavaram and Chichor villages of Sukma, located on the southern-most tip of the forested Bastar area.
They said all the six were wanted by the state police for various crimes and had warrants pending against them.
“They have been nabbed by the troops of the same Central Reserve Police Force unit whose seven men were ambushed by Maoists last week. All six Maoists have been handed over to state police,” an official said.
