Two CRPF commandos were killed in an IED blast triggered by naxalites in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada district early today.
The attack comes just a day after maoists blew off an anti-landmine vehicle killing a CRPF trooper in the same district.
A Tata-407 vehicle was blown up killing two CoBRA commandos on the spot, senior officials said.
The commandos, identified as constable K.P. Singh and Mukul Burman, were carrying rations for a CRPF camp nearby when the blast occurred.
Senior officials said the blast took place near Basuguda, where joint security forces had carried out a controversial encounter last month.
