Malkangiri, Dec 26:
Even as Odisha and Chhattisgarh police on Friday decided to use Mathili in Malkangiri district to launch operations to free the area both on this side of the border and the other side from Red Rebels, suspected Maoists in a barbaric act have killed the sarpanch of Badapadar gram panchayat under Kudumuluguma block in the district.
About ten suspected Maoists barged into the house of Badapadar sarpanch Jayaram Khara on Friday and killed him in cold blood by slitting his throat, informed a senior police official.
The barbaric incident took place at a little distance from the BSF camp at Badapadar, local sources said.
More details are awaited.
