KalingaTV News Network

Malkangiri: Members of CPI (Maoist) group killed a sarpanch last night after branding him as police informer in Sukma area of neighbouring Chhattisgarh bordering the district.

The deceased has been identified as Galumu Hanga, sarpanch of Badaseti village. Galumu, who happens to be a resident of Malkangiri district was living in Chhattisgarh for past few years due to Maoist threat.

At least 20-30 heavily armed Maoists barged into Galumu’s house located in Sukma in the wee hours of night and dragged him out. After initial reprimand for being a police informer, they killed him on the village road by slitting the throat.

Before leaving the village the red rebels left few posters near the body of the slain sarpanch. The posters released in the name of Konta Area Committee of the outlawed CPI (Maoist) group were found with messages warning people against turning police informers to avoid a similar fate.

Meanwhile, Sukma Police have started combing in and around the village following the killing.
