Kanker District, January 14, 2022: Three SSB jawans were seriously injured after two Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDS) planted by cadres of the CPI (Maoist) went off in Chhattisgarh’s Kanker district near Kosronda camp on Friday.
In two IED explosions, three jawans of Shastra Seema Bal (SSB) suffered major injuries, Kanker police said.
The incident occurred in Taroki police station limits.
“One jawan of SSB GP Surendra Singh who suffered injuries in morning hours was airlifted to Raipur for better treatment,” Kanker District Superintendent of Police said while interacting with the media.
Meanwhile, for the rescue of other jawans, operations are already on, and a reinforcement party has been dispatched. “We have sent them by road for better treatment,” the SP added.
In the Friday morning hours, when security forces were carrying out combing operations close to Kosrunda camp, one jawan suffered an IED explosion, said one police officer.
