Raipur, (Hindustan Times) : A group of suspected Maoists killed three security personnel and injured one in a brazen attack on a Doordarshan office in Chhattisgarh’s Jagdalpur district, 320 km south of Raipur, in the wee hours of Sunday.
The Maoists scaled the wall of the Doordarshan station at Marenga, 12 km from Jagdalpur town, and opened fire on Chhattisgarh Armed Force personnel around 2am, said a police source.
A head constable and two constables were killed in the attack. The injured security official was rushed to a hospital.
The attack shook the state government because of the seven districts in the state’s Maoist-hit Bastar zone, Jagdalpur is relatively the least affected.
