10 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) commandos from the elite COBRA(Commando Battalion For Resolute Action) battalion were assassinated and five other were injured in a Naxal IED blast in the jungles of Chakarbanda-Dumri Kala in the district of Aurangabad, Bihar late night on Monday.

The paramilitary soldiers were killed in an encounter which started off when they were ambushed by the insurgents hiding near Dumri Kala. The fight started on Monday afternoon after a combing operation was announced on the information that some Naxalites have gathered near Madanpur. 8 soldiers died on spot while the other two succumbed to death on their way to hospital.

The CRPF unit belonged to 205th COBRA battalion which is deployed in the area to carry on jungle warfare-operations and anti naxal operations.
