The Red rebels first triggered the blast and then opened indiscriminate fire on personnel of two platoons belonging to the CRPF's 26th Battalion at a place between Suarkatva and Aman who were returning from long-range patrolling, ASP Bermo Kranti Kumar said.

The CRPF men immediately retaliated. The injured constable has been rushed to hospital where his condition is stated to be critical, the ASP said

Sources said a large number of armed Maoists, including women cadres, were seen in the area in past few days.
