A Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawan lost his life during the ongoing encounter between Naxals and the CRPF in Pirtand area of Giridih in Jharkhand. Naxalism in Jharkhand is rampant and the ongoing encounter between the militants and the security forces is yet another testimony to that. Two days ago, Maoist attacked an ITBP camp, but no causalities were reported in that incident.
