Cadres of the outlawed CPI(Maoist) outfit abducted a gram rakhi and three others late on Saturday night from Badural and Sandural villages respectively.

Eyewitnesses claimed that a group of about 50 armed Maoists led by top leaders like Madhav, Uday and Sandhya first arrived at gram rakhi Laxman Pangi’s house at Badural  under Khairput police limits and dragged him out at gun-point. Pangi is working with the Mudulipada Police at Khairput.

Later, the rebels reached Sandural village adjoining Badural and abducted Daya Chalan whose brother is working as a village guard and asked him to follow them to the nearby forest.

In another incident, the Maoists also abducted liquor traders, Jagma and Janki, from Badural on the Malkangiri-Koraput border Ankadali village on Saturday.

This is the third such incident in a month in the district. Earlier, the Maoists abducted five villagers in the cut-off region and three from Kalimela area.
