Paramilitary trooper killed in Chhattisgarh

Raipur, Dec 13 - Maoist guerrillas Thursday shot dead a paramilitary trooper in Chhattisgarh's restive Bijapur district, the police said.Armed guerrillas opened fire on a nine-member Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) patrol near Cherrapalli area, 560 km from here, said the police.

One of the troopers, L. Kishore, received gunshots on head and back and succumbed to his injuries later.
After firing over 20 rounds, the insurgents sneaked into nearby forests, the police said. Bijapur and Dantewada are the worst insurgency-hit districts of India.

The insurgents blew up the Vishrampuri police station in a neighbouring Bastar district Wednesday evening after killing three cops.
The rebels gunned down 55 policemen this year in March at Rani Bodli village, in what is said to the biggest attack on the police by the Maoists.
