Raipur, Mar 12 (IBNS) Two Border Security Force (BSF) personnel were killed and four others injured in Maoist encounter in Chhattisgarh's Kanker district, according to reports.

India Today quoted a BSF official as saying, "The encounter broke out early today between a Border Security Force patrol and armed Naxal cadres near the Chhotebethiya-Pakhanjore jungle axis of the Maoist violence-hit district."

"While two jawans have been martyred in the exchange of fire, four others have been injured," the official said.

The gun battle started after the district security teamed up with the BSF and launched a special anti-Naxal move.

The deceased were identified as Rakesh Nehra and Vijay Kumar.
