Left wing extremists killed two villagers in cold blood in Bejangiwada, about 50 km from the district headquarters, presuming them to be police informers.

The rebels dumped the bodies in front of the local gram panchayat office sending a stern message to the locals.

Barely half a kilometre from the site, BSF had set up a camp about two months ago. The deceased were identified as Naresh Dhali and Ramesh Kabasi, both about 35 years of age. They were farmers by vocation.

Police said the two farmers had been kidnapped at gun-point by a group of 30 Maoists from their villages on Saturday night. Dhali is a resident of MPV 25 while Kabasi lives in Bapanpalli village. Late on Sunday night, the Naxals dumped their bodies in front of the GP office. Both had been shot in their chest. While Dhali’s ankles were hacked, Kabasi’s private parts were severed.

District police said none of them was informer. Malkangiri SP Akhileswar Singh said Dhali was quizzed for four to five days about a year and half back by the district police as he was considered a Naxal sympathiser.

The incident has sent shockwaves in the region. Bejangiwada, located about 15 km from Kalimela police station, is a Naxal hotbed.
