Chhattisgarh: Maoists on Wednesday afternoon killed the husband of a sarpanch in Phulavgadi police limits in Sukma district in Chhattisgarh, suspecting him to be a police informer.
The deceased has been identified as Kalmu Dhruva, a worker of the Communist Party of India (CPI) and the husband of Bodko village sarpanch.
According to villagers, he was brutally beaten to death with sticks by the ultras, said Sukma Superintendent of Police Abhishek Meena.
While the rebels had passed their message to boycott of the Assembly polls, a police team has been sent to the spot, added Sukma SP.
Sources said Maoists had killed deceased Dhruva’s brother a few days ago.
Notably, polling in 18 constituencies in eight Naxal-affected districts of Chattisgarh’s Bastar, Kanker, Sukma, Bijapur, Dantewada, Narayanpur, Kondagaon, and Rajnandgaon, is scheduled to be held on November 12.
