At least three people were killed and one sustained critical injuries when an overhead live electric wire snapped and fell on them at a crowded weekly market in Odisha's Malkangiri district, police said Monday.

The incident occurred Sunday in Sindhiput village, over 700 km from here, when people were busy shopping.

The site is located in the inaccessible cut off area, Superintendent of Police Akhileswar Singh told IANS, adding further details were awaited. 

The district of Malkangiri is considered a Maoist strong hold.
