CRPF Jawans

Sukma: four CRPF jawans were shot dead and three were wounded as one of their colleagues and fellow mate indiscriminately went on to open fire at them due to the suspected case of fratricide. The incident took place in the CRPF’s 50 battalion camp which is located in the Lingalapalli village which is Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district. The incident took place in the early hours of the 8th of November. Among the three injured, two of them are going under the treatment at Raipur in Chhattisgarh, and the other one has been taken to Bhadrachalam in Telangana. 

The incident took place around 3:30 AM, early morning. According to the police sources, the CRPF jawan who injured his colleagues has been identified as Reetesh Ranjan, who went on to fire shorts with his service rifle (AK47), and this incident took place inside the yard of the camp. With this incident, seven jawans suffered a loss and following that all of the seven jawans were brought to the Government Area Hospital in Telangana’s Bhadrachalam, and four of them were declared dead, at the time when they were brought. Three of them have been brutally injured. Among them, two were later airlifted to Chhattisgarh Raipur, and the other one is going under the treatment, where his condition is declared to be stable.

The three of the deceased jawans have been identified as Rajib Mondal, Dhanji, and Rajmani Kumar Yadav, according to the sources. The motive behind this incident has still been ascertained. The sources have further added that Reetesh Ranjan, has been detained by the authorities immediately after the mishap of the incident. And furthermore, the investigation is still underway. 

The Jawans have suffered from emotional stress, says CRPF. On the other hand the jawans are suffering from the “emotional stress”, which is leading to psychological imbalance in them.  

"Prima facie, it seems that due to some emotional stress leading to sudden psychological disbalance, constable Reetesh Ranjan lost his control and in a fit of rage opened fire on his colleagues," a CRPF spokesperson said."All the injured are being provided requisite medical care and evacuation of the injured in need of better medical care has been tied up," he said.

"Easy availability of a firearm to a personnel who either ends his life or attacks his colleagues is a big challenge for security forces. Different solutions are being looked at to check this issue, but a perfect one is still to be found," a senior CRPF officer said.
