At least 25 police officers have been killed and six others injured yesterday when hundreds of suspected Maoist rebels attacked a convoy in central India.

Since 2010, Maoist rebels have killed about 2,100 civilians and 800 security force personnel as part of their ongoing conflict with the Indian government, according to official figures.

According to police superintendent Jitendra Shukla, around 99 members of India's Central Reserve Police Force were patrolling a road construction project in Chhattisgarh state's Sukma district when they were ambushed.
