Chaibasa, In a major incident, ultras belonging to the proscribed CPI Maoist attacked former BJP MLA Gurucharan Nayak at a public function in Jharkhand's West Singhbhum district on Tuesday, killing two of his bodyguards, police said.

Another jawan managed to flee and save his life.

The former MLA himself with the help of villagers escaped from the spot and managed to reach Sonuwa Police Station.
