Four Border Security Force (BSF) jawans have lost their lives in an encounter with Naxals in Kanker district of Chhattisgarh. Two other personnel were injured in the encounter, which took place in Kanker district, police told PTI.
“One jawan of the 114 battalion of BSF died while two others sustained injuries in an encounter that broke out between the security forces and Naxals,” DIGP Anti Naxal Operation P Sundarraj told ANI.
