Bodies of the hapless victims were laid out on the road next to the wreckage of the civilian bus in what is becoming a now familiar picture after the fifth major Naxal strike in the country this year. The front portion of the vehicle had been almost completely destroyed by the force of the blast.

The shape of the smashed bus bore testimony to the intensity of the surgically planned IED attack by Left wing extremists. The IED attack ripped apart the bus carrying civilians and police officials and the area around it was strewn around with pieces of human flesh.

Forces which were scrambled to carry out rescue operations started bringing out the injured and dead and cordoned off the area. Several bodies which were brought out from the bus were completely mutilated and some of them got entangled with the seats that they could not be brought out without cutting open the bus.
