A similar incident was reported from Chhattisgarh a week ago when six ITBP jawans, posted in Naxal-affected Narayanpur district, were killed and two seriously injured when one of them started firing at colleagues in anger before shooting himself to death.

Constable Masudul Rahman who was furious over some argument started firing in anger, in which all the soldiers were killed.

AIG Devnath of Anti-Naxal Operation told that the jawan opened fire on fellow soldiers with his AK-47. According to Bastar IG P Sundararaj, this seems to be a mutual dispute.
