Defense personnel deaths due to left-wing extremism in India 2014-2018

According to the Indian government, about 67 security force personnel were killed due to left-wing extremist incidents across the country in 2018. In order to combat this form of insurgency, the government created a special left wing extremism division in 2006.

Left-wing extremism comes in various forms, but largely refers to the Naxal-Maoist insurgencies in the eastern, central and southern parts. This belt was commonly known as the Red Corridor due to its communist ideologies. As of 2011, about 83 districts across ten states were known to be affected by this kind of extremism.
