As counting of the recently concluded state elections was in progress, we learn that a 100 person CRPF contingent was attacked at around 9:00 am in the Sukma district of Chattisgarh, a heavily maoist infested area. More than 12 soldiers were killed and several more injured.

The government has announced a Rs. 1 crore ex-gratia payment to each family of the deceased soldier.
