Raipur, July 12 (ANI): Twenty-six policemen were killed and over a dozen injured in two separate Maoist attacks in Chhattisgarh's Rajnandgaon District on Sunday.

District Superintendent of Police B.K. Choubey was among the seriously injured and later succumbed to his injuries.

"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," said Girdhari Nayak, Additional Director General of Police.

Nayak said further details was still awaited, as the thickly forested attack site had no communication link with the rest of the State. (ANI)
