Lohardaga, Feb 11 (PTI) Two CoBRA jawans suffered serious injuries in an IED blast in Jharkhand’s Lohardaga district and were airlifted to Ranchi, a police officer said on Friday.
The blast occurred in extremist-hit Bulbul-Peshrar area when a joint team of the CRPF — of which CoBRA is a special operation unit — and the Jharkhand Police were engaged in an operation against Maoists.

The jawans, both in their 40s, were flown to Ranchi in a chopper, he said.
