The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Tuesday said it was “disturbed” over the killing of 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel by Naxalites in Chhattisgarh on April 24.

The troopers were attacked while on duty for securing road construction work in the Burkapal area of Sukma in Chhattisgarh.
 
“It is expected that the state will take note of the sacrifices made by the personnel of CRPF in maintaining the rule of law and creating an environment of peace and security in the country, and the aggrieved families would be suitably compensated,” said a statement issued by the rights panel. 
 
Citing the April, 2010 incident when around 70 CRPF personnel were killed in line of duty by the Naxalites in Chhattisgarh, the commission said, “Sadly not much has changed in terms of the attitude of certain elements towards security personnel given a spate of violent attacks on them, particularly, in Chhattisgarh and some other parts of the country, which is a cause of worry and need self-introspection on part of all the stakeholders in the interest of the country.”
 
The statement added, “A loss of life of any innocent person, whether in force or a civilian, is a matter of violation of human rights. As part of a civilized nation, every citizen should stand up in condemning all such incidents that lead to death and destruction in place of development, peace, progress and prosperity. As part of a civil society, if we can question and make the security forces accountable for failing in their duties, we are also accountable for our duties towards nation building.”
