Maoist rebels kill 14 policemen in central India

  • Maoist rebels in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh have killed at least 14 paramilitary personnel, according to media reports.

    The Maoists ambushed a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) team in the state’s Sukma district while the policemen were carrying out a raid on a rebel position in a forest.

    According to a spokesperson of the CRPF, the rebels used local villagers as human shields due to which the policemen could not “retaliate with full force.”
