And citing figures provided in the Lok Sabha, he said there have been 122 violent attacks this year and 14 jawans and 12 civilians have been killed.

Federal Aviation Administration rules would have made it hard to get a project like this off the ground in the United States. But it seems entirely feasible to build aircraft for short-range flights-like the 62-mile range of Kitty Hawk's new airplane.

Nine CRPF personnel were killed after suspected Naxals blew up their mine-protected vehicle in Chhattisgarh's Sukma, around a year after a dozen jawans were killed in a similar ambush in the district.

Meanwhile, Union Home minister Rajnath Singh condemned the attack and described the incident as "deeply distressing".

Mr Awasthi said although the Intelligence Bureau had sounded an alert in the Bastar region, there was no security lapse on the part of the road opening party of the CRPF.

Soon after the incident, reinforcements were rushed to the spot, around 500km from state capital Raipur, officials said, adding further details were awaited. "My deepest condolences to the families of Odia jawan Manoranjan Lenka and all the courageous personnel who lost their lives in the blast and wishing speedy recovery of those injured", Patnaik twitted.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also tweeted her condolences.

"The CRPF and security forces had been trying to dominate the area".
