Cops death roll in Maoist attack rises to five
Raipur, April 27: One more policeman in Chhattisgarh succumbed to his injuries Friday, a day after four police personnel were killed in the state in a landmine blast triggered by Maoist militants.

The incident took place in Michgaon village in Kanker district, about 175 km south of Raipur late Thursday evening. As many as 18 policemen were injured in the blast.

"The blast destroyed the front portion of the bus, four policemen were killed on the spot while seven of the 18 injured cops were in a serious condition," Kanker district police chief B.K. Choubey told IANS over phone.

In 2006, about 750 people were killed in Maoist violence across India and Chhattisgarh alone accounted 48 percent of the casualties.
