Maoists Trigger Blast in Central India, Two Security Personnel Injured
Maoist rebels triggered a blast in India’s Chhattisgarh state on Tuesday. Two security personnel of the Special Task Force were injured.
The blast occurred when a special task force vehicle was passing through a tunnel.
Both victims are admitted to a hospital… one is in critical condition.
The Maoist insurgency has gripped nearly one-third of the country in violence.
Analysts say the guerrilla war, waged mostly from the forests of central and eastern India, now poses the country's biggest internal security threat.
Hundreds of people have been killed and injured in the violence, perpetrated by both the rebels as well as security forces in counter operations.
