RAYAGADA: : Continuing their reign of terror in Rayagada district, Maoists killed a Dangoria Kondh youth of Nirgundi village under Kalyansinghpur police limits after trial in a kangaroo court in the wee hours of Thursday. The deceased is 22-year-old Shyamo Kadraka. Maoists killed Shyamo suspecting him to be a police informer.

His body was found hanging from a tree, on the outskirts of the village. Villagers retrieved the body and cremated it. Shyamo had been warned of dire consequence by Maoists in December last year through some posters that had appeared in Parshali panchayat under Kalyansinghpur police limits.

While relatives of Shyamo are tight-lipped about the incident, police have not reached the remote village yet.

Earlier on Tuesday, Maoists had triggered a landmine blast and engaged in an exchange of fire with the security forces near Lakhapadar village in Niyamgiri hill under Kalyansinghpur police limits.

On Republic Day, Maoists set afire a tractor and a JCB machine used in construction works in Daliakhuji village under Muniguda police limits in Rayagada district.

Rayagada SP K Siba Subramani said the Maoists want to create an atmosphere of fear in the remote area, which is mostly dominated by Dongria Kondhs. Combing has been intensified.
