Maoists slit throat of a person

A person was killed by Maoists at Bandhugaon in Odisha's Koraput district charging him to be a police informer, police said.

The dead man was idenified as Enkana Kadranga (35) of Tolopalesu village, they said.

A group of armed Maoists waylaid Kadranga while he was returning to Tolopalesu from Elgawalsa, about 100 km from here, under Bandhugaon police limits last night and slit his throat. His body was spotted by local villagers this morning, they said.

Superintendent of Police, Koraput, Anup Kumar Sahoo said: "We have received information about the incident but as the spot of the crime lies in a remote area, our men are taking all precautionary measures to reach the spot and recover the body.
Details will be known once our party reaches the spot."

A Maoist letter recovered from the spot revealed that Kadranga was killed as he was acting as a police informer, sources said.
