"This is a cold-blooded murder". It is an act of cowardice. "The attack was out of desperation", he told reporters after paying homage to those killed.

"The troopers replied in a fitting manner but taking geographical position to their advantage, the Maoists succeeded in inflicting loss to the CRPF", a CRPF statement said. "The Centre and state governments will work together", he added. The government promised to review its strategy on battling Naxalites, as the Chhattisgarh chief minister warned that an operation would be launched "with more firmness" and "vigour" against the guerrillas in the coming days.

Terming the situation as an armed revolt, Swamy said the crackdown should be done in such a way that the Maoists regret their crimes.

Condemning the attack, the Home Minister said that the sacrifice of the jawans would not go in vain. "We have taken it as a challenge". "It will be answered appropriately".

"We will not tolerate anyone hitting our soldiers like sitting ducks. We are working to root out the problem of Left Wing extremism", he stressed. "However, we are on high alert", Singh added.

The attack sparked allegations of intelligence failure.

The summer months are when they prefer to target security forces as the bushes and other vegetation wilt, providing them a clear view of the movement of the troops from hills, the officer said.

"These activists raise their voice and react violently if an extremist or a terrorist is killed by the police, but take shelter in silence when a large number of jawans and innocent people get killed by those who operate underground, and kill and run", he said. A huge assortment of 22 smart arms, including 13 AK series assault rifles and 5 INSAS rifles, 3,420 live rounds of various rifles, 75 magazines of AK rifles, 31of INSAS, 67 live UBGL rounds, 22 bullet proof jackets, two binoculars, five wireless sets and a deep search metal detector were also looted by the rebels, they said.

Meanwhile, slamming Digvijaya Singh for his remark, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) dubbed the Congress leader as a sympathizer of the Naxal cause.

He called for talks with all stakeholders to bring Maoist violence under control.

"Chief Minister Raman Singh ji and the Bharatiya Janata Party win elections from there because they had a deal and understanding with the Maoists".

Malik said he and his colleagues are ready to take on the insurgents again.

"The government should talk to all the stakeholders".

Narendra Modi, India's prime minister, sent his condolences to the families of the soldiers killed in the attack. The regions most affected by Maoist violence lie in a wide swath of mineral-rich, forested tribal lands, from Maharashtra to West Bengal. No condemnation of this barbaric act is strong enough. Condoling the death of 25 CRPF jawans including six from Bihar at Sukama on Monday the CM said everyone is with the family of the martyrs.
