Raipur, July 12 (ANI): Six policemen were killed and over a dozen injured in a Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh's Rajnandgaon District on Sunday.

District Superintendent of Police B.K. Choubey was among the injured and was battling for his life.

"Six policemen were killed and several injured in an ambush in a thickly forested stretch of Rajnandgaon district where a reinforcement party is struggling to reach due to the hilly terrain," ADGP Girdhari Nayak told reporters.

Nayak said more details were still awaited, as the thickly forested attack site had no communication link with the rest of the state. (ANI)
