CRPF jawan dead in Naxal attack : Orissa

New Delhi: A CRPF jawan was killed and two were critically injured in a landmine blast by Naxals in Malkangiri District of Orissa.

The blast took place near the Kalimela police station of the district. Heavy exchange of fire took place between the police and the Naxals soon after the blast.

The Naxals had given a boycott call for Republic Day celebrations in that area and had felled large trees on the road to restrict police entering the area.

The land mine blast took place as the CRPF jawans were trying to clear the road to Kalimela police station.

Despite the blast and amidst Naxal and self immolation threats by as many as 25 government employees to press their demands before the government in Bhubaneswar, Republic Day was celebrated with full colour and fervor.

In Bhubaneswar Governor Rameswar Thakur took the salute.
