Naxals kill man on suspicion of providing land for police camp

Wednesday, 12 June 2019 | Staff Reporter | KANKER

nNaxals shot down a man in Kanker district on the suspicion that he had provided his land to cops for setting up their camp, police said here on Tuesday.

Devendra Kumar Sinha, a resident of Charama area in the district, was in Badetevda village, where he owned farm land, for some work on Monday when around a dozen Naxals caught him and his son and forcibly took them to a nearby forest area, the police officer said.

The rebels then shot Sinha dead in the forest, located around 150 km from here. Before escaping from the spot, they warned his son not to inform the police, he said.

On hearing the gunshots, some villagers went to the forest and informed the police about the incident, according to the police      officer.

The police rushed there and sent the body for postmortem, he said.

A Maoist pamphlet was recovered from the spot in which the ultras claimed that Sinha had given his land to the police for setting up their camp in the area, the officer said. The official denied the claim of Naxals and said the exact motive behind the killing was yet to be ascertained.
