Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday expressed "shock and grief" over the death of 73 paramilitary personnel in a Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district.

The Prime Minister has expressed shock and grief over the loss of lives in a Naxal attack in Dantewada, a PMO spokesman said.

Singh spoke to Home Minister P Chidambaram and is understood to have sought details about the incident.

73 CRPF and district force personnel were killed when a large number of Naxals ambushed them in the thick Mukrana forests of Dantewada by first triggering blasts and then opening indiscriminate fire.
