PTI, RAIPUR/NEW DELHI: Nine CRPF personnel were on Tuesday killed after Maoists blasted their mine protected vehicle using over 50 kgs of explosives in Chhattisgarh's Sukma, about a year after a dozen jawans were killed in a similar ambush in the district.

Officials said the incident took place around 12:30 pm along the 5-km under-construction Kistaram-Palodi road when the troops of the 212th battalion of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were out for an operation.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the incident pwas "deeply distressing" and asked CRPF Director General R R Bhatnagar to rush to Chhattisgarh.
