Home Minister Rajnath Singh said India’s “serious” challenge of Naxalism has entered its “last leg”; Maoists are resorting to coward ambushes as they are unable to undertake direct fights.

Addressing top anti-Naxal operations force CRPF’s troops on their 79th Raising Day, Singh said the force’s operational efforts “drastically” brought down incidents of Left Wing Extremism while extremists’ casualty rate has gone up.

The demoralized Naxal cadres are now unable to undertake direct fight with security forces; hence with their limited capabilities, Naxals are resorting to coward ambushes and attacks, Rajnath Singh said while addressing CRPF.

He also paid tributes to the nine CRPF personnel recently killed in a Naxal ambush in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma after a deadly explosive was clandestinely triggered by ultras underneath a mine-protected vehicle.
