A gunbattle broke out in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh's restive Bastar region Monday morning after left-wing Naxal rebels opened fire at a police station in Dantewada district, reported Indo-Asian News Service.

It is the fourth attack by the rebels since June 9. As many as 18 policemen have been killed in three separate rebel attacks.

The gunbattle began when armed rebels fired several shots at a police station based at Bhejji village, some 500 km south of state capital Raipur, said the report.

The Bhejji Police Station complex also has a camp of a paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) battalion, which was attacked by rebels Saturday in which three troopers were killed and three others injured.
