On April 24, 25 personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force or CRPF were killed in an attack by the Maoists. The attack came a month after 12 CRPF jawans were killed in a similar ambush on March 11. Maoists even stole 10 weapons from the dead troopers. In 2010, 75 CRPF troopers were killed in Dantewada in the heart of the so called "red corridor". On this episode of We The People, we are asking: Has the CRPF borne the brunt of India's decades-long battle with Maoists? Are our security forces sitting ducks in the hands of the Maoists? Are more boots on the ground the way forward? And, with 2017 marking the 50th anniversary of the Naxal movement, do we need to rethink and reevaluate the strategy to deal with the Naxals?
