KHAMMAM: Eesam Narayana, a sympathiser of CPI- ML New Democracy and resident of Nagaaram village in Gundala mandal, was shot dead allegedly by activists of CPI-ML Janasakthi dalam in his village last night.
According to police, a six-member group of persons came to the house of Narayana around 10 pm on Saturday, took him by force to a distance of 6 km and fired two bullets at him. Consequently, Narayana died on the spot.
The killers, in a letter left near the body, stated they were resorting to this act because Narayana was responsible for the death of two local persons caused by consumption of spurious toddy. A dispute with the deceased arising out of his interference in the execution of some village development works, in spite of continued warnings from the extremists, was also stated to be another reason for the shoot-out, the letter added.
DSP V. Veerareddi, however, told this paper that it was not clear which group of Naxals had resorted to the killing of Narayana.
