The Maoists shot dead two villagers in Chhattisgarh’s insurgency-hit Rajnandgaon district after accusing them to be police informers, an official said on Wednesday.
Ashok Maravi (36) and Guman Singh Dhruve (26) were found lying dead in a pool of blood on the outskirts of village Suktara under the Gandai police station limits this morning,a local police official told PTI.
As per the preliminary information, four armed Maoists, including a woman, arrived in the village, located around 80 km from here, on motorcycles last night and forced the two victims to go with them.
Maravi and Dhurve were found dead with bullet injuries in front of the government school the next morning, the official said.
Maoist pamphlets recovered from the spot claimed that the two were acting as police informers, the official said, while denying that the two had any connection with police.
