KORAPUT: District police on Thursday recovered the body of T Anil Kumar alias Chandu, a former Maoist cadre of Koraput-Srikakulam Divisional committee, from Kanti village under Semiliguda police limits. He was also the head of the intelligence wing of the committee. Chandu’s body bore injuries on his back which indicates that he was attacked from behind.

According to  ASP BR Rao, Chandu, who belonged to Chirala village  in Andhra Pradesh,  was arrested from Talapaniki village under Narayanpatna block in 2014. He  was granted conditional bail and later rehabilitated in Koraput.
