Seven Indian Military perons die in Maoist attack

Seven Indian Military perons die in Maoist attack Officials in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh confirmed that at least seven paramilitary policemen were killed in a landmine blast on Wednesday, allegedly triggered by Maoist rebels (BBC). The attack near Dantewada district targeted personnel from the Central Reserve Police Force. Chhattisgarh is often hit by Maoist violence. The Maoists claim they are fighting for communist rule and greater rights for tribal people. Last July, bodies of four policemen abducted by Maoist rebels were recovered in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district. The Maoist insurgency in India began in West Bengal in the late 1960s and has spread to more than 200 districts in the country. Previously, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh described India's Maoist insurgency as its "greatest internal security challenge".
