 Naxal violence close to its end in Chhattisgarh due to sacrifices of security forces: Raman Singh

Raipur: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh said on Thursday that due to the efforts of security forces, Naxal violence was close to its end in the state.

He also lauded the efforts of the police personnel, saying that they were fighting Naxals in difficult conditions.

Singh posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter: “Our gallant police jawans and their sacrifice has brought us closer to the end of Naxalism.”

In another post he wrote: “Chhattisgarh police is fighting a national battle to eliminate Naxalism. Jawans fight Naxals in remote region and difficult conditions.

He further tweeted: “Their careful watch provides us a peaceful sleep.”

Meanwhile, a Special Task Force jawan was killed in an encounter between security forces and Naxals in Chhattisgarh's insurgency-hit Dantewada district today.

The face-off between a joint team of security personnel and Maoists took place in Dudhiras village under Gadiras police station limits, Dantewada Superintendent of Police, Kamlochan Kashyap, told PTI.

A contingent of STF and district force was mobilised from Gadrias in the interiors forests, located around 400 km away from here.

When they reached Dudhiras forests, after cordoning off some 18 km, a group of armed cadres opened indiscriminate firing on them leaving a jawan dead, the SP said.

However, Naxals escaped into the core forests when jawans retaliated heavily, he added.
