A Border Security Force (BSF) jawan was killed allegedly by Naxals in Chhattisgarh’s insurgency-hit Kanker district, police said.
The incident took place in Sangam village under the limits of Panchanjur police station when the deceased 30-year-old Harikesh attached to the 122nd battalion of BSF was outside his camp, senior police officials from Kanker district told Bhasha/PTI over phone.
At this time, some ultras fired upon Harikesh and fled away from the spot. He was initially admitted to a local hospital and later shifted to Raipur, where he succumbed to his injuries during treatment, they said.
According to police, a manhunt has been initiated to trace down the Naxals who were allegedly involved in the killing.
