‘Police informer’ murdered in swabhiman anchal
MALKANGIRI: A villager of the erstwhile cut-off region was killed by Maoists who suspected him of being a police informer on Sunday. The body of the victim Dinabandhu Bepari of Jodamba village was found by locals at Bihanguda Chhak near Khajaguda forest under Jodamba panchayat on Monday.
Bepari was held responsible for the killing of two cadres in Janturai village in Swabhiman Anchal on January 25 when there was a face off between the Naxals and villagers.
He along with his family members was on his way to Panasput on Sunday when his vehicle was intercepted by Maoists. They directed his family members to leave and asked him to accompany them to Khajaguda forest, 4 km away from the Jodamba BSF camp where they killed him.
Police are yet to come out with a statement on the murder. Although security forces have cleared Maoist presence by establishing BSF COB at Janbai, Badpada, Jantapai and Hantalguda, Maoists still dominate areas like Panasput, Ralegada, Papermetla, Andrapalli and Jantri.
Kamlu had joined the CPI(Maoist) local organisational squad in Pedaras of Katekyan area committee under Darva division in 2007. His is allegedly involved in 8 crimes including killing of civilians
