Two commandos of the CRPF’s jungle warfare unit CoBRA sustained injuries in an encounter with Naxalites in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district on Thursday. At least six Naxalites were injured in gunfight. 

They said at least half a dozen Naxalites sustained bullet injuries in the firefight. “A joint team of the Special Task Force (STF) and Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) of the CRPF had launched the operation from Dabbamarka camp towards Sakler when the exchange of fire took place at around 9 am,” Sukma Superintendent of Police Sunil Sharma told PTI.
