During a day before the first phase of polling in the Maoist-dominated areas of Chhattisgarh, insurgents triggered a series of improvised explosive devices (IED) in the Koylibeda block of Kanker district, killing one BSF sub-inspector and injuring another.
Inspector-General of Police Dipanshu Kabra said a BSF team was out on an area-domination exercise in view of the election on Monday, when Naxals detonated at least six IEDs in a forest in Kanker district, around 200 km from the capital Raipur. The incident took place between Udanpur and Gattakal village, officials said.
Sub-Inspector Mahendra Singh was killed in the blasts, said Mr Kabra, the nodal officer for the election-related security in the State. In a separate incident in Bedre village in Bijapur district, a suspected Maoist was killed, the police said.
