Rajnandgaon, Feb 18 (PTI) Naxals have killed a

villager in Chhattisgarh''s Rajnandgaon district on suspicion

of being a police informer, an official said on Thursday.

The incident took place on Wednesday night in

Khursipar Khurd village which falls under Bortalav police

station''s jurisdiction, they said.

Around 10 armed Naxals, clad in uniform, stormed into

the house of Munna Verma, who was in his late 30s, and took

him to nearby forest, Rajnandgaon''s Additional Superintendent

of Police Jaiprakash Barhai said.

They attacked him with sharp-edged weapons before

shooting him dead, he said.

Thursday morning and sent the body for postmortem, he said.

Maoists'' leaflets and pamphlets were recovered from

the spot in which the rebels claimed Verma was acting as a

police informer, Barhai said.

with police.

With this incident, five villagers have so far been

killed by ultras in the last two months at separate places in

Rajnandgaon district after being accused of working as police

informers, the police said. PTI COR TKP
