JHARKHAND – At least 11 Indian soldiers got injured in an IED blast triggered by Naxals in Seraikela Kharsawan district of Jharkhand State in India on Tuesday.

The blast took place when a joint team of the CRPF’s special jungle warfare unit, CoBRA, and the state police were carrying out an operation in the forests of Kuchai area in the district.

Jharkhand, a state in eastern India, has been at the centre of the Naxalite-Maoist insurgency. Since the uprising of the Naxalites in 1967, 6,000 people have been killed in fighting between the Naxalites and counter-insurgency operations.
