New Delhi [India], Apr 25 (ANI): Expressing his heartfelt condolence to the families of the 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel killed in the encounter with Naxals that took place in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district, Israel Envoy to India Daniel Carmon on Tuesday said that he is saddened and concerned with the incident. "Very saddened and concerned about the incident, our condolences to the Indian Government and the people. Hoping for quick action to the families for the bravehearts," said Carmon. Earlier in the day, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the government has taken as a challenge the killing of CRPF personnel and vowed that no one will be spared. He said that the Centre and state government would work together to ensure that the perpetrators were brought to book. Singh, who paid homage to the jawans during a wreath laying ceremony along with his deputy Hansraj Ahir and Chief Minister Raman Singh, said this cowardly and unfortunate act exposed desperation and frustration. "It is a cold blooded murder by the extremists. The Centre and state governments will work together and take action in this regard," Rajnath told a joint press briefing with the Chief Minister. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh has called for concrete strategy to counter such attacks, while expressing grief over the death of jawans. "It's high time when we need to adopt some strategies to counter such attacks in future. I offer my condolence to the families of deceased jawans," Raman said. The Home Minister also briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the attack last night. (ANI)
