Raipur: Two persons were killed allegedly by Naxals on suspicion of being police informers, at separate places in Chhattisgarh's worst insurgency-hit Sukma district, police said.

While Kicche Mukka was killed in Polampalli police station area this morning, Sona Muchaki (40) was axed to death by Maoists in Chhindgarh area last night, Sukma Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Santosh Singh said.

 

Both the villages are around 450 km from the state capital.

As per preliminary information, a group of rebels stormed into the house of Kichhe at Polampalli, after he returned from his fields this morning. He was dragged out and killed with sharp weapons, he said.

The reason behind the murder is yet to be ascertained as no pamphlets were dropped by assailants. However, there are reports that Kichhe was a former Salwa Judum (erstwhile anti-Naxalite movement) leader and also working for Congress for sometime but it is yet to be verified, the ASP said.

In a separate incident, Sona was brutally axed to death in front of his wife and children by Naxals at Rokel village under Chhindgarh police outpost, he said.

According to pamphlets dropped by the ultras, Sona allegedly helped security forces in setting up a police camp in the village. He was also acting as a police informer since 2011, the ASP said.

Naxals are frustrated with increasing pressure of security forces and development works being carried out by the administration. Due to this they are killing innocent villagers and branding them as police informers, he claimed.

Cases have been registered and security forces have been sent to nab the assailants, Singh said.
