Malkangiri, Oct 30:
In yet another act of violence, the Maoists have killed a tribal youth in Odisha’s Malkangiri district, suspecting him to have been a police informer.
According to reports, a group of 10-15 armed Maoists reached Panimetala village in the late night hours on Wednesday and abducted Bhima Madhi, a 27-year-old tribal, whose bullet-ridden body was found lying on the main road near MPV-31 village by the villagers in the early morning hours today.
The villagers also found two Maoists posters near the body.
While one poster said that Bheema was killed for being a police informer, the other poster was on the call for the Malkangiri bandh today to protest the killing of three Maoists by the tribals at Biravaram village on the Odisha-Andhra Pradesh border on October 20.
Meanwhile, police have recovered Bheema’s body and sent it to the district headquarters hospital for post mortem.
The police suspect the involvement of the Kalimela Dalam in the murder of the tribal youth.
Following the incident, combing operation in the area has been intensified, reports said.
