As many as 15 policemen were killed in a Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district on Friday, the police said.

"Maoists triggered a landmine explosion near Pamed police station in the district, in which 15 policemen were killed," Girdhari Nayak, inspector general in charge of Maoist operations, told IANS.

The attack site in extreme southern interiors of the district is thickly forested, some 560 km south of capital Raipur, close to the Andhra Pradesh border.
