Dantewada, Apr 9 (IBNS): As the country is gearing up for the first phase of Lok Saha polling on Apr 11, BJP MLA Bheema Mandavi and four others were killed as suspected Maoists attacked their convoy in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada area on Tuesday, media reports said.

Sources from the police told Hindustan Times that the carcade of Bheema Mandavi, the MLA of Dantewada constituency, was attacked with IEDs.
