Four police personnel have been killed and 15 injured – five are in critical condition – after Maoists targeted a bus carrying 27 DRG (District Reserve Guard) troops in Chhattisgarh’s Naryanpur district.

The bus, which was travelling between Kadenar and Kanhargaon, was hit by an IED (improvised explosive device). Chhattisgarh DGP DM Awasthi told news agency PTI that the troops were returning after an anti-Maoist operation.

“Three security personnel were killed and many others sustained injuries. Reinforcement has been rushed to the spot and further details are awaited,” DGP Awasthi said.

The 45th Battalion of the ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) is helping in evacuating the injured.

The entire area has been cordoned off, and a search operation is ongoing.

On Monday police said five Maoists, one of who was allegedly involved in the killing of four policemen in 2015, were arrested after raids on two locations in Bijapur district.

Separate teams of District Force and District Reserve Guard (DRG) were involved in these operations, according to news agency PTI.
