Six Indian paramilitary troopers were killed Saturday when extreme left-wing Naxalite rebels blew up a police vehicle in the central state of Chhattisgarh, reported the Indo-Asian News Service.

The attack took place in the state's Bijapur district where the Naxalites blew up a bullet-proof vehicle in a forested stretch, killing at least six paramilitary men and injuring a few others, the news service quoted Director General of Police Vishwa Ranjan as saying in the state capital Raipur.

The attack took place in the same forested Bastar region, where the rebels killed 76 security personnel on April 6.
