Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has declared a financial help of Rs 25 lakh each to the families of three CRPF jawans belonging to the state, who were killed in a Maoist attack Chhattisgarh's Sukma district. He also stated that the government was putting in efforts to make sure that Indian jawans are equipped with the latest equipment when present at the war front. He said, "Our jawans sacrificed their lives while fighting a tough battle. People of the country hope that this will not be repeated and the Centre is alert over it".

"An encounter took place with Naxals at 8am and seeing the response of 208 CoBRA, the Naxals fled away. We will also focus on the intelligence mechanism".

"Every (Naxal-affected) state has been taking the Left Wing Extremism (LWE) as a challenge".

To a query, the minister denied the probability of deploying the Army to tackle Naxals in the Bastar region, which is considered as the hotbed of the ultras. The reason for the new camps was that the force didn't want its troops to travel several kilometres back to headquarters after operations or area domination exercises. The rebels used over 50 kgs of explosives to blast the vehicle.

Wreath laying ceremony was held for nine soldiers of CRPF 212 Battalion, who were killed.
