Maoists shot jawans, slit their throats: Autopsy report

Narayanpur, Chhattisgarh: The post-mortem reports of the 27 CRPF jawans who were killed in the Chhattisgarh attack have revealed the savagery unleashed by the Maoists on Tuesday. The preliminary reports said the Naxals pumped in 3 to 4 bullets into each of the bodies that were found. But the brutality didn't stop there. Several jawans had their throats slit open while others had their heads smashed and limbs severed. The CRPF personnel who survived however managed to prevent the Naxals from taking away the arms of the jawans killed. CRPF men say several Naxals were also killed in the encounter, but their bodies haven't been found as Naxals are known to carry away the bodies of their slain colleagues. Meanwhile, in yet another Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh on Thursday, three informers were killed in Narayanpur district. Twenty-seven CRPF jawans were killed and seven injured when heavily-armed Maoists opened fire from automatic weapons on the 63-member security contingent, 3 km from the CRPF camp in Narayanpur district of Chhattisgarh on Tuesday. The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) top brass toured Chhattisgarh on Wednesday to take stock of what went wrong. Their preliminary assessment said basic precautions were once again ignored.
