Chhattisgarh's main opposition Congress today accused the BJP government in the state of insensitivity while arranging the transportation of the bodies of the 15 security personnel who died in an attack by the Naxals in Sukma district two days ago.

State Congress spokesperson Sushil Anand Shukla said here that the bodies of the four policemen and 11 CRPF jawans were sent to their respective homes by train, instead of flying them by helicopters or aircraft.

While Chief Minister Raman Singh and other ministers use state helicopters, the bodies of brave jawans had to suffer the "ignominy" of long train journeys, Shukla said.

Sixteen people, including 4 policemen and 11 CRPF jawans, were killed in the attack.
