Reports quoting family sources said the deceased, identified as Budura Khalamali, was sleeping on the varandah outside his house last night. However, the family members found him lying in a pool of blood with his throat slit open this morning.
Though police suspects that the Maoists might have killed the tribal suspecting him as a police informer, there was no poster or leaflet found near the body which the Red Rebels usually do.
Talking to media persons today, Malkangiri SP Mitrabhanu Mohapatra said a police team has rushed to the village for an on-the-spot investigation to find out whether the Maoists are involved in the killing of the tribal.
