Maoists abduct, kill ‘police informer’

Nuapada: In another trademark brutal act, Maoists shot dead a villager on suspicion of being a police informer late last night.

The deceased has been identified as Gajapati Majhi, a resident of Dhobaghat in Nuapada district.

According to reports, the ultras had kidnapped Majhi before killing him in the Patdara forest, where his bullet-ridden body was found in the wee hours on Tuesday.

“The Maoists had kidnapped Majhi two days ago before shooting him dead in the forest yesterday night,” said Nuapada SP Pinak Mishra.

More details are awaited.
