Raipur: Two CRPF jawans were killed in a landmine blast triggered by Naxals in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district here on Tuesday, hours after nine extremists were gunned down in an operation in Dantewada.

The incident occurred near Murtanda village, 280 kms from here, when a bullet-proof vehicle was on its way back from Awapally after ferrying jawans of Timapur-based 168 battalion of CRPF, Additional SP BPS Rajbhanu told PTI over phone.

"The Naxals blew up the vehicle by setting off a landmine resulting in the death of the driver and a constable," he said.

Nine Naxals were killed in a fierce encounter with CRPF and state police personnel in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district, 383 kms from here.
