Alert cops foil red attack

Raipur, Dec. 24: Maoist guerrillas today evening made a vain attempt to attack the Jagargunda police station in Dantewada district, reports our correspondent.

The alert security personnel, however, foiled the move of the rebels. The rebels had struck at the place at about 7pm and opened indiscriminate fire from different corners at the station — about 500km from the state capital.

Sources said a huge deployment of security personnel in the station foiled the attempt of the rebels who faced strong retaliation.

Besides jawans of the Special Task Force, personnel of Special Armed Force and District Force were present in the station that also adjoins a relief camp, housing some 1,000 villagers, who had deserted their homes in Maoist terror.

Inspector general of police R.K. Vij said the rebels were camping in the area and had been firing at the station in intermittently. “There is sufficient force in the station,” said Vij, adding that there was no casualty reported.
