Sacrifices of martyrs will not go in vain: PM on Sukma attack

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today condemned the Naxal attack on CRPF personnel in Chhattisgarh, terming it as a "cowardly and deplorable" act, and asserted that the sacrifices of the martyrs will not go in vain.

"Attack on @crpfindia personnel in Chhattisgarh is cowardly & deplorable. We are monitoring the situation closely," he tweeted.

"We are proud of the valour of our @crpfindia personnel. The sacrifice of the martyrs will not go in vain. Condolences to their families," he added.

He wished a speedy recovery to those injured in today's attack. In one of the deadliest attacks, Naxals ambushed a CRPF contingent in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district at around 12:25 pm, killing several personnel.
