Armed cadres of the People’s Liberation Guerilla Army (PLGA), an armed wing of the outlawed CPI – Maoist have brutally killed a villager in Andherpara village under Bhejji police station of insurgency-hit Sukma of Chhattisgarh on March 28.
As per the preliminary information received late on March 28 night around 6 to 7 armed cadres of PLGA barged into Andherpara village and abducted a villager identified as Raju Madkam on suspicion of being a police informer.
It’s been reported that the Maoist took Madkam to the nearby forest, where they brutally hacked him to death after a brief interrogation, the Konta Area Committee of the banned CPI-Maoist has claimed the responsibility of the murder.
The Maoists have also left some leaflets on the spot in which they have alleged that Raju was working as an informer of the police for three years for which he had been warned a few times, but despite the warnings, he didn’t stop; therefore the organisation has called for his execution. It’s been learnt that the maoist threw his body on the outskirts of the village before fleeing in the forests.
On the next morning, the villagers informed the police, following which a police team arrived on the spot and recovered the body, which was later sent for an autopsy.
It is to be noted that the maoists have been continuously targeting innocent villagers in the maoist-affected regions of the State, as more than a dozen of civilians of Chhattisgarh and nearby maoist-affected regions have been brutally killed by the ultras so far in the last three months alone.
Earlier on the 17th of this month, armed cadres of the CPI had barged into the house of a 38-year-old Narayan Nagesh in Lakshmanpur village of Raigarh in Nabarangpur District adjoining Chhattisgarh and killed him on the pretext of being a wood Mafia.
In a similar incident, a 25-year-old youth, Sainath Narote, from Madhukar village under Nalgonda police station limits, was abducted and brutally killed by the maoists on March 9. Narote was going towards a local market when cadres of the banned group abducted and forcibly took him along, it’s been learnt that the maoists alleged Narote for being an informer before shooting him from a close range.
In another incident on March 4, armed groups of the Maoist barged into a religious gathering and abducted half a dozen villagers in Tumdiwal village of Kondagaon. The ultras took the villagers to the nearby forest, where they left five of them after a brief interrogation, while the body of another villager was recovered on the next morning. It was learnt that the maoist killed him after alleging him for being an informer.
