Raipur: Three civilians and a CISF jawan were killed on November 8 when suspected Naxals blew up a bus with an improvised explosive device (IED) in poll-bound Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district, police said.

Two personnel of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) were also injured in the incident, Dantewada Superintendent of Police Abhishek Pallava told PTI.
