Maoist kill woman sarpanch’s husband in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma
Malkangiri: By unleashing Red-fear yet again in the Sukma district of poll-bound Chhattisgarh State bordering Odisha, Maoists killed a woman sarpanch’s husband last evening.
The deceased has been identified as Kalmu Dhruva, husband of Bodko panchayat.
Kalmu, who was a senior member of the Communist Party of India (CPI) was dragged out of his home by a group of heavily armed Maoists and cudgelled mercilessly over being a suspected police informer and then shot dead, said some villagers.
The Red rebels left messages on road milestones near the village, appealing people to boycott the upcoming poll before leaving the spot.
Notably, voting in 18 constituencies in eight Maoist-infested districts – Bastar, Kanker, Sukma, Bijapur, Dantewada, Narayanpur, Kondagaon and Rajnandgaon — will take place on November 12.
Polling in the remaining 72 constituencies of the state will take place on November 20.
