Strongly condemning the Naxal attack on CRPF contingent in Narayanpur district in which 26 personnel were shot dead, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh today said their sacrifices will not go in vain.

In the latest of a series of deadly attacks by the ultra-Left activists, 26 CRPF personnel were shot dead and eight injured in an ambush in a remote area in the district.

“The security personnel have laid down their lives to free the people from Naxal terror. Their sacrifice will not go in vain,” the Chief Minister said.

“The Naxals have carried out a cowardly act. People and groups having faith in human rights should condemn this act of murder in once voice,” he said, vowing to end the Maoist menace in the state.

“The extremists lack moral courage to engage in a direct fight with our brave security forces,” he added.

Mr. Singh conveyed his heart-felt condolence to the families of the martyred security men.

Immediately after being informed of the attack, Mr. Singh held an emergency meeting with top administration and police officials to take stock of the situation and issued directives to them.
