Superintendent of Police (SP) Narayanpur, Sadanand Kumar informed that DRG personnel were injured in the IED blasts set up by Naxals.
"The joint party of ITBP and DRG were out for area domination towards village Kodoli and Jharwahi when the IED blast occurred," he said.

It may be mentioned that Naxalism is a prevailing problem in Chhattisgarh. Last month, A Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officer was killed during an encounter with Maoists in Chhattisgarh’s left-wing extremism affected Bijapur district.
The incident took place at Timmapur in the district when a CRPF patrol of the 168th battalion was out for a road opening and sanitising duty.
The officer, Assistant Commandant S B Tirkey, suffered bullet injuries and later succumbed to injuries.
