Info on troops in Dantewada was leaked: CRPF
The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) believes that information regarding the movement of its troops, killed in a deadly landmine blast in Dantewada, was “leaked” and it has begun a probe to find out the mole who could be from “within or outside” the paramilitary. “It is certain that information about their movement was leaked. Somewhere or at some stage this has happened.The boys were doing a surprise non-operational movement and hence were in mufti. We are looking into it,” CRPF-DG K Durga Prasad said. Seven CRPF men were killed in a deadly landmine blast carried out by Naxals on Wednesday, which also left a massive four-feet deep crater on the road in the worst Maoist violence-affected Dantewada district. The DG reached Chhattisgarh late Wednesday night and will travel to the blast site near Melawada village in the district where Naxals blew off a Tata-709 mini-truck being used by the CRPF men.
