Red Terror: Maoists kill 20 paramilitary personnel in WB

Left-wing extremists struck at two different places in West Midnapore district of West Bengal, killing 20 jawans. The incident occured just two days after terror attack in Pune.

Initial repors suggested that the Maoists targeted the CRPF camp after setting it ablaze in Silda. Another attack on a CRPF camp was reported from Dharampur.

Maoist leader Kishanji has reportedly claimed responsibility for this daredevil attack. This is one of the biggest Maoist guerillas' attack on police or armymen in West Bengal, which is witnessing a resurgence of the Naxalites.

Nearly 100 Naxalites were involved in the attacks in a single day. Kishanji has dared the Centre to continue the recently launched Operation Greenhunt against the ultra-left wing militancy.
