Raipur, Sep 16 (IANS) A Chhattisgarh policeman was killed Friday by Maoist rebels in the state’s restive Bastar region, officials said.
Chhattisgarh Armed Force constable P.C. Khalko was killed when Maoists opened fire at a police camp at Pamalwaya in Bijapur district, some 500 km south of Raipur.
“Maoists carried out a flash attack at the police camp Friday early hours. Khalko who was on duty just outside the camp, received bullet injuries and died on the spot,” officials at the police headquarters here told IANS.
