BULANDSHAHR (UTTAR PRADESH): Family of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawan Sher Mohammad, who was injured in the Naxal attack in Sukma, refused to meet Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader V. Solanki here and forced him to turn back, as he arrived at the family’s doorstep with an entourage and made a spectacle with music and fireworks.

“India is still trying to get over the grief of losing 25 soldiers in Sukma, but he (Solanki) has the gall to meet me at my home with an entourage. This is just shameful,” said the mother of an injured jawan.

The mother later added that the MLA had apologized for his mistake.

Muhammad was injured during the attack on CRPF patrol team on April 24.

The CRPF constable is undergoing treatment at Raipur hospital.

As many as 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed and five others injured in the encounter with naxals.

The attack took place on personnel of the CRPF's 74th Battalion as they were assisting the local population in road building and clearing activity in the district.
