In recent incidents we have seen the surprise attack by the Naxals on paramilitary as the Maoist attack on April 24, 2017 that killed 26 CRPF soldiers, was one of the deadliest in recent years. In such cases the forces are highly vulnerable as they don’t have time to prepare shelter cover or bunkers and they don’t have choice to stay in trucks as they are not bullet proof. The UAV surveillance over tropical forests is unreliable; the use of aircraft for transporting troops and for aerial attacks can be highly dangerous. Security forces may not be aware of the presence of insurgents in an area, and may come under fire as they fly too close or try to land.
