MALKANGIRI: Maoists assaulted a samiti member of Kudmulgumma and left him inside a forest on Thursday night. The incident followed the killing of Nanda Golari in Sanyasiguda village in the wee hours of the same day.

A group of 20 armed ultras thronged Nakamamudi village and forcibly took away the samiti member, Madhav Sisa from his house to a nearby forest. They assaulted him severely and left Sisa in the forest in a critical condition. Some villagers rescued the samiti member and admitted him to the District Headquarters Hospital, where he is undergoing treatment now. His condition is stated to be critical.

In the last two days, Maoists had killed two persons of the area suspecting that both were backing the police in their operations against the ultras in Malkangiri district.

A group of 50 armed-ultras stormed into the village in the wee hours on December 27 and targeted a camp at Kudumuluguma where residents from a nearby area who had fled due to Maoist menace were rehabilitated. They abducted two men after threatening them and accusing them of helping the police. While the body of Rabi Pujari was found with his throat slit on the outskirts of the village on Tuesday, Nanda was kept hostage by the ultras. On the wee hours of Thursday, Maoists took Nanda to his village Sanyasiguda in Chitrakonda block and disappeared into the forest after killing him.
