Chhattisgarh: Naxals kill policeman

January 18, 2013 19:50 IST

Naxals killed a security personnel and injured another in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district on Friday afternoon, while a helicopter sent to airlift the injured security personnel had lost connection with air traffic control, said the police.

"One jawan of the Chhattisgarh Armed Force was killed and another injured in the Naxal attack in the forest area of Temelwada village under Dornapal police station area," said police spokesperson Sonal Mishra.

Mishra said, "We have not received (information on) the location of the helicopter which was sent to air-lift the injured jawans from the attack site."

The attack took place when a police team was conducting a road-opening operation.
