Raipur: One jawan was killed while four others got injured during a Naxal operation in Chhattisgarh's Narayanpur district.

"During an operation in Narayanpur district, there was a scuffle with the Naxalites. One jawan has been martyred and four others are injured," said RK Vij, the ADG of Naxal operations.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had earlier last month asked the Maoists to shun the path of violence, saying there is no space for violence in a democracy.
