Bhopal: The incidents of attack on men in khaki are rising in Madhya Pradesh, according to data prepared by the police department. On Saturday, a band of blackbuck poachers shot dead three policemen including a sub-inspector in a gunfight at Aron region in Guna district of the state.

The policemen who lost their lives in the attack were sub-inspector Neeraj Bhargav and constables Rajkumar Jatav and Sant Kumar Meena. The poachers ran away with an Insas assault rifle from one of the slain policemen, sources in the police department said.

Reacting to Nath’s statement, president of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s state unit VD Sharma said that the place where the incident occurred belonged to Congress MP, Digvijaya Singh. Nath said, “The death of three policemen in Guna is very sad, extremely painful. These policemen were martyred in the line of duty. I bow to their sacrifice. Their martyrdom will not go in vain.”
