Raipur, Chhattisgarh, Apr 13 (IBNS) In successive Maoist attacks in 48 hours, one BSF jawan was killed and eight security personnel were injured in two separate incidents in the extremist-hit Chhattisgarh on Monday.

Reports quoted BSF officials as saying that head constable R P Solanki succumbed to his bullet injuries after  armed Maoists attacked  a BSF camp at Chhotebetiya forests in Kanker district's Pakhanjoor area in the early hours.

In another incident, eight  security personnel  were  injured in a landmine blast triggered by the Maoists  in Dantewada district.
