Four killed in Chhattisgarh Maoist attack

Raipur: Armed Maoists killed at least four cadres of the civil militia Salwa Judum movement in a pre-dawn attack Sunday in a village in Chhattisgarh's insurgency hit Dantewada district, police said.

"Four Salwa Judum cadres were killed and seven were injured in a rebel attack at Patapara village near Bhairamgarh," Rahul Sharma, Dantewada district superintendent of police, told IANS by phone.
