Naxals kill one of the villagers at 'Jan Adalat', release other hostages in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district, say police.

Maoists had abducted around 250 villagers in Chhattisgarh, and efforts were on for their release, Chief Minister Raman Singh said on Saturday. Speaking to media persons in Bastar district, Raman Singh said most of the abducted villagers were connected with the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.

The abductions took place even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the region on Saturday, and 11,000 additional security personnel were deployed for the visit. The villagers were reportedly on their way to Modi's rally, against which the Maoists had called a shutdown in Bastar.

Sources, however, said around 500 people were abducted from Sukma district just hours before they were to attend Modi's rally in Dantewada district.
