Raipur:

A total of 120 CRPF jawans, deployed for anti-naxal operations in the state, were part of the audience which watched the Indian Premier League match between Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders, in Raipur on Wednesday.


The troops, six each selected from the 20 battalions of the force for anti-Maoist operations, were given special tickets by the CRPF top brass to watch the IPL T20 match at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium.

"The jawans who were the best in operations were chosen to see this match in the state capital. This is nothing but an initiative to boost the morale of the troopers," a senior force officer said.

"Only the jawans were chosen for the free passes of this match and any officer, who wanted to go, had purchased the ticket," the officer added.

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) brought these jawans to Raipur from far-flung posts of the force deployed in the state, some from as far as the naxal hotbed of Bastar.
