The ghastly attack on CRPF personnel yesterday claimed four lives while two others were injured.
The attack had been carried out in the restive Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh.
The martyrs were brought to the Mana camp in Raipur where the senior officials of police and paramilitary paid their tributes.
DGP AN Upadhyay as well as Special DG (Naxal Ops) DM Awasthi and other senior officers saluted the sacrifices of the four martyrs.
The bodies were thereafter sent to their home villages or towns.
In the subsequent interaction, the police officers acknowledged that the spot where the incident took place is as it is sensitive and that it should not be seen as having any specific signal to electoral preparations.
It need be mentioned that Chhattisgarh is holding state election in two phases out of which the first phase
voting will be carried out in naxal afflicted parts of the state.
