This government of India is solely responsible for this bloodbath
because it continues to treat the struggle of the revolutionary
maoists who are waging a war for land,water,forest,dignity,equality
as a law and order problem without even a hint of lip service to
any reform to better the lives of the oppressed who with no room
to turn have taken up arms to wage
More ever these men are expendable to our ruling classes.
Some senior official's will fly in place a wreath on all the dead bodies,
then they will deliver an uninspiring speech on how they served
their country and then retire for their evening seista at the local club.
It will be all in a day's work for them
Why can't the industrialists,businessmen and politicians
send their son's and brothers to fight the maoists ?
But then why would they ? when they know such cannon fodder is
available so easily and cheaply.
14 policemen killed in Jharkhand blast
Ranchi, Dec. 2 (PTI): Fourteen policemen were killed and three injured today when Naxalites blew up the vehicle they were travelling in with an IED in a village near the steel city of Bokaro in Jharkhand.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Anil Palta said an assistant sub-inspector, two havildars and 11 jawans of the Special Task Force were killed in the blast this afternoon in Kanchkir village, about 50 km from Bokaro.
According to officials in the control room here, two vehicles with security personnel were returning from a patrol at around three pm when the extremists triggered the improvised explosive device hidden in a milk can in the Maoist -infested village. The second vehicle bore the brunt of the blast while the first one escaped.
The injured were admitted to a local hospital in Bokaro and the condition of two personnel was serious, officials said.
Shortly after the blast, a CRPF battalion reached the spot from Bokaro and cordoned off the heavily-mined jungle area to search for Naxal insurgents responsible for attack.
The Centre has rushed a bomb disposal squad of the elite National Security Guard to examine the site.
A CRPF spokesman in the national capital said an electric circuit, used for triggering the IED, had been found at the blast site.
In a joint operation last week, the CRPF and state police had destroyed three bunkers of the Maoists situated in the Jhumra Hills in the same district.
