Maoists kill 73 police in ambush

#1
Maoists in India have killed 73 members of the Central Reserve Police Force and others, according to the Times of India - report here http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...lled-in-Maoist-ambush/articleshow/5765722.cms

If I have read the report correctly, they were on their way back from a route clearance operation when a truck hit a mine, and the ambush was sprung. It must have been quite a fight to end up with a WW2 scale casualty list.

RIP.

I like their badge. The unit was originally set up by the British (according to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Reserve_Police_Force ) as the Crown Representative's Police, a much nicer sounding name to my old ear.
