The mine proof vehicle (MPV) carrying CRPF personnel was blown up after it was hit by an IED blast at Kistaram area in Sukma district, about 395 km south of Raipur, the capital city of Chhattisgarh. CRPF director-general RR Bhatnagar, who was in Delhi, left for Raipur.

Times Now reported that the attack is being seen by officials as a response to the last few encounters in Sukma and other districts.

Sukma Superintendent of Police had rushed to the spot with extra force and rescue operation had begun to safely evacuate the victims, he said.

He said, the IED blast in Sukma is deeply distressing. They added that no bullets have been detected in the two injured personnel.

Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh too strongly condemned the "cowardly and shameful" attack and said Naxals were afraid that development works will put an end to their activities.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh tweeted condolences to the families of the deceased in the attack and wished for speedy recovery of the injured jawans.

President Ram Nath Kovind offered condolences, saying that he was "anguished" by the attack on the paramilitary officials.

Upping the ante against the Centre, the Congress said the former had failed to control Left-wing extremism with its "aimless" policy on national security which had created disquiet internally and on the borders, and said the latest Maoist attack on a CRPF team exposed the government's hollow claims on ending Naxalism.
