Rayagada: Maoists have released all four residents of Badadengini village of the district today, after keeping them in captivity for 4 days, since their abduction on Sunday.
The abductees identified as Bali Karkaria, Hara Takri, Chela Karkaria and Nepal Takri were reportedly released after intervention of two interlocutors from the village, this afternoon.
While the exact reason of the abduction of the villagers is yet to be confirmed by police, it suspects that they could have been captured by the red rebels on suspicion of being police informers. A massive combing operation has been launched near Badadengini village to catch the Maoists holed up in nearby forest.
Notably, at least 10 armed rebels of Bansadhara-Ghumusara-Nagabali (BGN) division of CPI (Maoist) group raided the village on Sunday night and took the four with them.
