A group of Maoist rebels kidnapped and gunned down a youth at Dumari area in Giridih on the suspicion of him being a police informer. The incident took place at Kanakdiha village under the Dumari police station on Sunday night when Chudka Soren was kidnapped by a group of Naxals who attacked the village.

According to SDPO Dumari, Niraj Kumar, a tribal youth was sleeping in his house at Kanakdiha village at 10 pm, when heavily armed Naxals barged in and abducted Chudka.

Police said that the youth was later shot dead with an AK-47 on Sunday night, within two hours of his abduction.

The bullet-riddled body of the deceased was dumped at village road near Kanakdiha. There were visible bullet marks on the neck and back.

Dumari police reached the spot on Monday morning and recovered the body. Two handwritten notes left by the Naxals were also recovered from near the body. They said Chudka Soren was punished for being a police informer. The body was later brought to the Dumari police station and the family members of the deceased identified him as Chudka Soren.

The body was then sent to the Giridih sub divisional hospital in Giridih town for post-mortem. Family members of Chudka Soren registered an FIR against few unknown Naxals at the Dumari police station in connection with the killing and abduction. Two killings by the Naxals in Giridih district of Jharkhand within the span of a three months have become a cause of worry for the local authorities.
