New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday strongly condemned the Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh's Sukma and condoled the killing of CRPF personnel in the ambush.

Modi wrote on Twitter saying words fell short when one tried condemning the attack. He wrote, "Words are not enough to condemn the brutal & inhuman attack by anti-national elements in Sukma, Chhattisgarh."

 

PM extended his condolences to the family of the deceased military personnel and said, "I salute the courageous CRPF personnel who have been martyred today. Our thoughts are with the families of those who lost their loved ones." 

PM added that he had spoken to Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and Centre was monitoring the situation closely.  

Maoists gunned down 13 CRPF troopers engaged in an operation aimed at flushing out the rebels from a thickly forested area near Sukma district's Chintagufa.

The attack site is about 500 km south of capital Raipur. The area is cut off from all communication networks.
