Malkangiri: What could be called a perfect epitome of bravery and humanity, CRPF jawans in cut off areas of Chitrakonda carried two tribal women on slings for over 7 km after they were severely injured in explosions of pressure bombs planted by Maoists.

The incident occurred on Saturday when the jawans were busy in combing operations in the dense jungles near Malkangiri- Bijapur (Chhattisgarh) border.
