Chhattisgarh Operation: Nearly 30 Maoists Killed, Says CRPF Chief
New Delhi: In the wake of the brutal killing of 22 security personnel by Maoists in Chhattisgarh, CRPF Chief Kuldiep Singh said that there was no intelligence or operational failure.
Singh, who is in Chhattisgarh to supervise the situation after the Maoist attack, said around 25-30 Maoists were also killed though the exact number is yet to be ascertained.
“There is no point in saying that there was some kind of intelligence or operational failure. Had it been some intelligence failure, forces would have not gone for the operation. And if there was some operational failure, so many Maoists would have not been killed,” DG CRPF was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
“Three tractors were used by Maoists to carry the injured and the dead bodies from the site. It is tough to say right now the exact number of Maoists killed in the operation but it should not be less than 25-30,” he added.
