ROURKELA: Suspected Maoists killed the head of Langal Kanta village under K Bolang police limits in Sundargarh district. The 55-year-old Deonath
Singh was abducted from his house on Tuesday and his body was found in a nearby jungle by locals on Wednesday afternoon.

A poster of CPI (Maoist) was found near his body. It said that Singh has been punished as he was a police informer. Police were yet to reach the spot till filing of this report. According to sources, Singh has been under Maoist threat for quite some time.

Sources said about 18 persons had come to his house on March 29 looking for him but left as he was not at home at that time. Late on Tuesday night, about 35 armed persons entered Singh's house and forcibly took him away to an unknown destination.

Afraid of the Maoists, Singh's family did not inform the police about the incident. According to eyewitness, there were deep cut marks on his throat and several injuries on his body. The incident came close on the heels of the murder of a CPM cadre under Koira police limits, about 10 days ago.
