Maoist militants kill at least 26 police officers during routine patrols

The ambush by Maoist militants occurred in the Narayanpur district of Chhattisgarh state, officials said.

A further eight security officials were injured in the attack which took place during routine patrols by the militants.

Several Indian paramilitary and police officers and Maoist insurgents were killed in recent months as attacks have increased.

The Indian Maoists are one of the most fierce organizations which the Indian government face with tens of thousands of members who live in dense forestry areas where it is difficult to track them down.

The Maoist organisation formed in late 2004 as the merger of Communist Party of India (Marxist–Leninist) People’s War and the Maoist Communist Centre of India (MCC). The aim of the group is to bring the government down.

The militant organization receives the support of people in the poorest of areas in India and has also received support from younger Indians.

Officials in India have said that in 2009, there were a over 900 people killed, related to Maoist attacks with over 600 being civilians.

However, many residents in poorer areas of the Asian country see the Maoist rebels as fighting for their own cause.

The Maoist militant organization, usually attack Indian security forces but countless number of civilians have also been killed or injured by insurgents and security officials.

  1. Even though the deaths of paramilitary forces is regrettable, the actions of the tribal rebels is justified, under the circumstances. Whatever news comes from the area, consisting four states, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and west Bengal is government provided. There are 60,000 paramilitary and police engaged in annihilating a small band of armed rebels. From top government policy makers like P Chidambaran to the chief ministers of states affected, we hear only government side. They may be guilty of resurrection, rebellion, however, Tribals are not stupid. They as a whole, are a neglected and exploited people of India. Their lands are stolen, they are abused, their villages are demolished, they are not provided adiquately for their lands which are offered to Indian as well as foreign multinational mining companies. The displacement alone is not a big issue, what is a bigger problem is the tribals are left to fend for themselves without any support. This is discrimination of the worst kind.
