Coffins of Indian Central Reserve Police

Coffins of Indian Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) paramilitary soldiers lie draped with the Indian flag under an awning in Jagdalpur on April 7, 2010, a day after 76 police personnel were killed in a brutally effective attack that undermined a months long government offensive against Maoist insurgents. The massacre, in the central state of Chhattisgarh, was the biggest single blow that the Maoists have landed in their decades long struggle against India’s regional and central governments. Home Minister P. Chidambaram, visiting the region, said the Maoists had executed a complex, multi stage ambush in which a patrol was attacked and two sets of reinforcements had then come under heavy fire.
