Police ‘informer’ injured in Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh

Raipur: A police ‘informer’ was today injured when Naxals opened fire at him at a weekly market in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district.

“Madvi Kosa, a gopniya sainik (informer), was attacked by armed rebels at the weekly market of Gadiras this morning,” a senior police official told PTI.

After being hit by the bullets, Kosa somehow managed to escape and reach Gadiras police station located close to the market, he said.

He was then shifted to Jagdalpur hospital and after preliminary treatment, he was airlifted to Raipur for further medication, the official said.

Security personnel have launched a combing operation in the area to nab the attackers, he added.
