Raipur (India), March 12 (ANI): Condemning the encounter in Chhattisgarh’s Kanker district, the state’s Home Minister, Ajay Chandrakar, said on Saturday that the incident was reflective of the frustration prevailing among the Maoists, and added that India’s fight against terrorism will move forward.
“This is the last phase of tussle. Our fight will move forward. Naxals are surrendering gradually. The encounters won’t have any effect. We will not back down. This is a sign of frustration by the Maoists,” Chandrakar told the media here.
Two Border Security Force (BSF) personnel were killed and four injured in a fierce encounter which is underway with Maoists in Kanker.
In the special operations which were launched from Kanker last night by 170,122 and 165 Battalions of the BSF and the civil police near Becha village, a gunbattle ensued with Naxals in which six BSF personnel were injured.
The injured personnel were evacuated to Raipur in a chopper during which two personnel succumbed to their injuries. (ANI)
