Bijapur, Jan 25 (PTI) A road contractor was killed by suspected Naxals in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district on Monday, police said.

The incident took place between 3 pm to 4 pm near Koter village under Gangaloor police station limits, an official said.

He died while being shifted from a local hospital to the district facility,' he said.
