A Chhattisgarh Armed Force (CAF) personnel was hacked to death by Naxalites at a village market in Chhattisgarh’s insurgency-hit Bijapur district on Sunday, police said.


The attack occurred around 9.30 am in a village under Kutru police station limits, where a CAF team was deployed for security at a market, a senior official said. ”A small group of Naxalites attacked company commander Tijau Ram Bhuarya, who was leading the CAF team,” he said.

On being alerted about it, a police team rushed to the spot and launched a search in the area to trace the assailants, the official said.
