CRPF personnel died to save a dog

Chattisgarh-forestsCRPF personnel, fighting the reds in Chattisgarh forests, have dug their own grave and walked into the death trap, it has come to light today.
Seven personnel died in the process of arranging a cooler for a sick snifer dog, which has been part of their operations. Naxals triggered a landmine killing seven armed men.
The story behind this is this: Four personnel were put on the job to arrange a cooler for the dog named ‘Scout’, a Belgian Malinois suffering from heatstroke, as his condition was deteriorating and needed immediate medical attention. The four jawans, including the driver, were travelling from their camp in Nareli to Renganar. Taking all precautions against the ultras, they travelled in a civil vehicle and wore plain clothes. However, the information regarding the secret movement seems to have got somehow leaked, sources said. The vehicle stopped at the Bacheli bus stand, where six other CRPF personnel were waiting for a civil bus. They boarded the vehicle since it was headed to their companies. Later, three of them got down at Renganar to collect the cooler.
Officials suspect that the vehicle carrying CRPF men was spotted while leaving the Renganar camp from where the cooler was collected or at the market place where they stopped to pick up other troops. Sources said the IED was planted by the Maoists at least 7-8 days before the vehicle was attacked. “On the day of the blast, they definitely had specific information about the movement and they targeted the vehicle,” said a CRPF officer. The Maoists shot from a close range at three jawans and they were thrown out of the vehicle by the impact of the blast and died on the spot. There were AK-47 bullet injuries on the bodies of the three jawans.
K Durga Prasad, Director General, CRPF, clarified that there has been no leak from within the force and denied the possibility of an inside job.
