New Delhi: Home Minister P Chidambaram said on Tuesday that the scores of Central Reserve Police Force (CPRF) personnel massacred in Chhattisgarh earlier in the day seemed to have walked into a Maoist trap.

"Something has gone very wrong," a sombre Chidambaram told reporters outside his office here. "They seem to have walked into a trap set by the Naxalites (Maoists). Casualties are very high. I am deeply shocked."
