New Delhi: Ten policemen and a civilian were killed in a Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada, officials said on Wednesday.

Naxalites blew up the mini-goods van in which a team of the Chhattisgarh police’s District Reserve Guard (DRG) was travelling by using an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), officials said.

“It is very saddening. My condolences to the bereaved families. This fight is in its last stage. Naxals won’t be spared,” Bhupesh Baghel told reporters.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘strongly condemned’ the naxal attack on Chhattisgarh police personnel and paid tributes to those killed in the incident.
