Kanker (Chhattisgarh): A group of Naxals on Saturday opened fire on the Border Security Force (BSF) camp in Kanker district of Chhattisgarh. The firing took place at around 8.30 pm in the Koylibeda police station area. The BSF and DRG personnel retaliated to the firing, said Sundarraj Pattilingam, Inspector General of Bastar. The firing lasted for about 15-20 minutes and the Naxals fled taking advantage of the darkness and forest. All BSF personnel in the camp are safe. Earlier this month, 22 security personnel had lost their lives while 31 sustained injuries in an encounter that broke out between security forces and Naxals along the Chhattisgarh’s Sukma-Bijapur border after a party of jawans were ambushed by Maoists near Jonnaguda village.
