Dantewada (Chhattisgarh) [India], Aug 11 (ANI): A villager was killed by a group of armed Naxals on the suspicion that he was a police informer.
The incident took place late last night in Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh. The deceased, who has been identified as Lokesh, was attacked by Naxals at his residence in Bade Gudra village near a CRPF camp under Kuakonda police station limits. The Naxals barged into Lokesh's house and dragged the victim out, confirmed Superintendent of Police (SP) Abhishek Palwal.
After receiving the information, police reached the location and a case has been registered in this regard. A search operation is also underway in the area.
More details are awaited.
The attacks can be seen as the Naxals' outrage over the killings of their 14 cadres by the security forces in an encounter in neighbouring Sukma district on August 6. (ANI)
