Three killed by Maoists in Bihar

Lakhisarai (Bihar) (PTI): Maoists gunned down three men and critically injured two women at a village in Lakhisarai district, in retaliation to the killing of a hardcore naxalite by the villagers on the day of Holi.

Heavily-armed CPI(Maoist) ultras raided Khaira village late last night and sprayed a hail of bullets killing Damodar Yadav, Mukesh Yadav and Wakil Yadav.

Two women, Usha Devi and Rahvo Devi, suffered gun-shot injuries in the attack. They were being treated at a government hospital here where their condition was stated to be critical, the sources said.

People of Khaira including some women had lynched Ravidas alias Badal, a self-proclaimed area commander of CPI(Maosit), after he entered the women's house and teased them at gun point during Holi celebrations in the village on March 11.

Police raids were on in various areas to apprehend the naxalites, they added
