The incident took place at the camp of 150 battalion of the CRPF in the premises of Chintagufa police station early on Sunday morning, Sukma Additional Superintendent of Police Neeraj Chandrakar said.

“Armed rebels opened indiscriminate fire at the camp leaving Sub Inspector rank official Mahendra Singh Meena seriously injured,” he said.

However, the rebels fled the spot after security forces launched retaliatory attack on them.  

The ultras had ambushed a security patrol in Sukma district last month in which 11 CRPF personnel, four jawans of Chhattisgarh police and one civilian were killed.
