naxal attack on CRPF

A major attack was launched by Naxalites on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in Bijapur district in Dantewada, Chattisgarh.
The CRPF company was stationed at the Sherpal camp. Around 700 Naxals stormed the camp late on Sunday night resulting in gun fire. No details on the casualties are available so far. It’s the second time the same camp was under attack.
On November 30, 4 ultras were killed, when they tried to storm the camp. Also, this comes just 2 days after 14 policemen were killed and 3 injured when Naxalites blew up the vehicle they were travelling in with an Improvised Explosive Device in a village near Bokaro in Jharkhand. In fact, TIMES NOW last week had also reported on the first visual proof of the existence of a female militant wing in the Naxal movement in this belt itself. Training to these extremists is being imparted in dense jungles in camps that dot the infamous ‘Red Corrridor’ that stretches from the Nepal till down south to the Dandakaranya region in Andhra Pradesh. Though the government has been working on a four-pronged strategy to improve internal security Naxal menace has been growing in the past couple of years especially after the ‘Red Corridor’ was literally opened up following the merger of the Maoists with the People’s War Naxal outfit that has been active down South
