A policeman was Monday injured, and his rifle looted, after Naxals attacked him with sharp-edged weapons in Chhattisgarh’s Bijapur district, police said.

“Some Naxals attacked the constable in the dark with sharp-edged weapons when he was talking on the phone. Before the other security personnel there could react, the ultras looted his self-loading rifle and fled,” the official said.

“The injured constable was rushed to a local hospital and then shifted to Bijapur town for further treatment. Efforts are on to nab the attackers,” he said. Read More
