Raipur, Mar 10 (PTI) A former sarpanch was killed by naxals in Chhattisgarh’s insurgency-hit Sukma district, on the suspicion of being a police informer, police said.

The body of Madvi Dula (about 55 years of age) was found today in Tokanpalli forest under Chintagufa police station limits, a police official told PTI.

As per preliminary information, Dula was picked up yesterday by Maoist from his home in Burkapal village, where he was Sarpanch earlier and taken to the forest, he said.
