Democracy and Class Struggle says Naxalites Never Die they Just multiply
Maoists have killed 24 policemen in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh, in one of the largest attacks by the rebels in recent years.
The officers were guarding road workers in the Sukma district, which has seen a long-running insurgency by Maoists.
The details of the attack are sketchy, but one report said it was carried out by 300 rebels.
The Maoists say they are fighting for greater rights for tribal people and the rural poor.
Their insurgency began in the eastern state of West Bengal in the late 1960s, later spreading to more than one-third of India's 600-plus administrative districts.
The attack on the personnel of the paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) began at 13:00 local time on Monday and the clashes went on for a few hours, reports said.
It is not yet known if the Maoists suffered any casualties.
