Maoists kill six civilians in ChhattisgarhMay 16th, 2010 - 1:21 pm ICT by IANS
Raipur, May 16 (IANS) Maoist guerrillas have killed six civilians, including a village head, in Chhattisgarh’s Rajnandgaon district on charges of spying, police said Sunday.
The bodies of the six people were found dumped in a forested area of Manpur locality in Uchapur village in Rajnandgaon, about 175 km from here, Chhattisgarh Director General of Police Vishwa Ranjan told IANS.
The victims included a village sarpanch (head) who was abducted early this week along with five others by armed Maoists on charges of spying for the police. All the bodies were found with their throats slit.
The latest terrorist act of the Maoists targeting civilians has created panic among the residents of Rajnandgaon that borders Maharashtra’s Gadchiroli district.
The state has witnessed a spurt in Maoist violence in recent months with the rebels carrying out the biggest ever attack April 6 in Dantewada district when Maoists massacred 76 security personnel. This was followed by another attack May 8 in Bijapur district in which eight Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers were killed when their vehicle was blown up by the guerrillas.
