Naxals kill three villagers for being police informers
Chatra (Jharkhand), Oct 8. (PTI): Three villagers have been killed by CPI (Maoist) ultras on suspicion of being police informers at Itkhori in Chatra district, the police said.
Superintendent of police Subodh Kumar told reporters here that the Maoists had kidnapped the three persons from Varkha village last night, took them to a nearby forest and slit their throats.
The bodies were recovered this morning. A note found near the bodies said the three persons had informed the police about the presence of the Maoists in the village, which resulted in an encounter three days ago in which a Maoist was injured, Kumar added.
The police, however, denied the allegations as usual.
