RAIPUR: A 19-year-old student of a livelihood college was allegedly abducted and killed by naxals in Chhattisgarh's Sukma district, police said Sunday.

The body of Kunjami Shankar, who went missing late Saturday night from his village Kundanpal under Kukanar police station limits, was found lying in a pool of blood Sunday in a nearby forest, Sukma superintendent of police Abhishek Meena told PTI over phone.

The motive behind the killing is not known yet, he said.

As per preliminary information, Kunjami was picked up by a group of armed ultras from his house in Kundanpal, around 500 km away from here, when he was alone, he said.

Prima facie, he was hacked to death.

The deceased was a student of Livelihood College in Sukma town.
