President Pranab Mukherjee on Monday condemned the Maoist attack on CRPF personnel in Chattisgarh, which left at least 26 troopers dead.

"Strongly condemn attack on CRPF personnel in Chattisgarh; condolences to families of deceased and prayers for injured," the President said in a tweet.

Hundreds of Maoists massacred at least 26 Central Reserve Police Force personnel in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district in the bloodiest attack in the state since 2013.
