Maoists attack CRPF camp in Jharkhand

A tribal woman with her child on her back picks red chillies scattered on a road after suspected Maoist rebels set on fire four trucks from Andhra Pradesh state.

Armed Maoists attacked the camp located in a school, about 50 km from here, around 11 pm last night, Deputy Inspector General of Police, R K Mullick, said.

"While a CRPF jawan was injured in the firing, a villager was killed in the cross fire. The jawan is out of danger," Mullick said.

The school was being used by the CRPF as a temporary camp to face naxal challenge in Ranchi district during their bandh, Mullick said. The Maoist fled the spot after a strong retaliatory action.
