Six Indian soldiers die after Maoist attack

Por olimurs.92

The deceased were members of the Indian military force known as the Rifles of Assam, a state located in the northeastern region of India. The attack was perpetrated last Sunday, in charge of several Maoist militiamen. The attack consisted of the explosion of a bomb, and, in addition to the deceased, as a result three other people were also injured.

According to local media, the events occurred in the vicinity of a river where approximately 40 paramilitaries were drinking. Suddenly, a bomb exploded in the place and, after that, several men began to shoot at them.

The author of the attack, perpetrated in the vicinity of the Indian town of Aboi, was claimed by the National Socialist Council of Nagaland, who announced that the number of deaths has risen to six. It happens that in recent months the Maoists have carried out several attacks against the Indian forces in that same region of India, incidents that have left a balance of several dozens of police and members of the assassinated Rifles of Assam.

It is worth noting that in April 2017, at least 25 members of the Central Reserve Police Force of India were killed in an attack executed by Maoists, considered the most important in recent years.

At that time, the agents were escorting a group of workers involved in the construction of a road of vital importance by the authorities to finally be able to stop the Maoist insurgency in that area. The construction of that road is precisely the main basis of that conflict.

The work has an extension of 20 kilometers, and once completed, will give the authorities of the region direct access to the center of the Maoist insurgency.

The attacks have been constant for more than a decade, for example, in 2010 75 police officers lost their lives, and another twelve did so in 2017 due to similar ambushes perpetrated by the Maoist military, also known as ‘Naxalists’.

The members of the movement have been named in that way since it was born after a revolt in the Bengali village of Naxalbari in 1967. Its main objective has always been to impose a Maoist-style agrarian revolution and it continues active after half a century of operations on all in the so-called ‘red belt’, a strip of territory that runs through the center and east of India.
