Maoists opened fire at a makeshift Central Reserve Police Force camp at Bundu in Jharkhand on Tuesday night, leaving a villager dead and a jawan injured, the police said on Wednesday.
Armed Maoists attacked the camp located in a school, about 50 km from Ranchi, at approximately 11 pm on Tuesday 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 crossfire. 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 the 48-hour bandh called by them, Mullick said. The Maoists fled the spot after strong retaliatory action.
