Armed Maoists set on fire at least six trucks loaded with iron ore in Chhattisgarh's violence-hit Dantewada district early on Saturday, police said.

"Maoists came out of forests around midnight and stopped six trucks between Bhansi and Bacheli and set them on fire," Dantewada Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) S.R.P. Kalluri told the news agency on phone from Dantewada town, headquarters of the district.

The attack site is located some 420 km south of capital Raipur and within 2 km from Bacheli, a major iron ore mining facility of India's top iron ore producer in public sector NMDC Ltd.
