Raipur: One CRPF jawan was killed in a Maoist attack early on Friday morning in Chhattisgarh’s Dhamtari district, reports Hindustan Times.

Another CRPF jawan has suffered a bullet injury on his left leg in the attack.

This is the second Maoist attack in as many days.

On Thursday, a BSF battalion was attacked by Maoists in Chhattisgarh’s Kanker district during a combing operation. Four BSF jawans were killed in the attack and two others were injured.

The skirmish took place in the forest of Chameda village when a joint team of CRPF’s 211 battalion and District Force (DF) was out on an anti-Maoist operation.

The patrolling team, comprising around 50 personnel of CRPF and 10 of District Force, had begun an operation on April 3 in the interiors of Khallari and Borai police station areas.
