Raipur: At least four District Reserve Guard (DRG) jawans were injured in an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast suspected to be triggered by the Naxals in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district on Saturday.
According to ANI, the IED blast was triggered in a forest near Sirsetti village, under the Fulbagdi police station limits, when the security personnel were out on an anti-Naxal operation.
"Four jawans of the DRG were injured in the blast," Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police Sundarraj P said.
DRGs are part of the state police force.
A reinforcement was rushed to the area and efforts were on to evacuate the injured personnel, he added.
On March 13, nine CRPF personnel were killed between Kistaram and Palodi villages in the insurgency-affected Sukma district after a blast carried out by the Naxals targeted their mine-protected vehicle (MPV).
