Martyrs Uniform found in Dustbin, Centre asks Chhattisgarh Govt to Probe

Raipur, Dec 04: In a big insult to the CRPF Martyrs, who died for the state in Sukma Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh, their blood-stained uniforms were found in a dustbin at the hospital premises. The Union Home Ministry has sought a report from the state government on this matter.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said that he had directed Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh to investigate how the uniforms of the CRPF martyrs, who died in a Maoist ambush in Sukma, ended up in trash cans outside a hospital where their bodies were autopsied.

"I believe that memorials should be made in honour of martyred police and army men in all the states. Not only that, their life history and how they sacrificed their life should also be mentioned. This is the ideology of our government," he added.

"As per the procedure, police bring back the belongings (of a deceased) following post-mortem. After receiving the information that some uniforms and belongings were found left

there, CRPF officials were asked to collect them," Additional Director General of Police (anti-Naxal operations), RK Vij told PTI.

Deputy Inspector General (DIG), CRPF, Pradeep Chandra said a probe would be conducted in this regard.

Meanwhile, the dean of Dr BR Ambedkar Memorial hospital, Vivek Chaudhary, said, "After a post-mortem is performed, the viscera and other remains are preserved and not kept

openly. The video that I saw today (of the blood-stained uniforms left lying in the open) is very unfortunate."

An attack by Maoist forces on Monday left 13 Central Reserve Police Force ( CRPF) personnel of paramilitary unit including two officers a deputy commandant and an assistant commandant dead, in the Sukma district of Chhattisgarh.

The incident took place near Chintagufa area in Sukma district. This was the biggest attack on the security forces by the naxals this year.
