Upping the ante against the Centre, the Congress said the former had failed to control Left-wing extremism with its "aimless" policy on national security which had created disquiet internally and on the borders, and said the latest Maoist attack on a CRPF team exposed the government's hollow claims on ending Naxalism.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh extended his condolences to the bereaved families.

A statement issued by the CRPF said that the encounter took place between the CRPF's 208 CoBRA (Commando Battalion for Resolute Action) battalion and Maoists at 8 a.m. today.

At least nine CRPF personnel were killed and several others injured in a Maoist attack in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh on Tuesday.

12 jawans of the CRPF were killed in the same district in March a year ago.
