Members of the CPI (Maoist) severed the head and legs of a man who was given "death sentence" by a "kangaroo court" in the Naxal-infested Giridih district, police said on Friday. The Maoists claimed responsibility for the incident and pasted a poster on the distorted body stating that the man was

killed after being branded as a supporter of the "reactionary forces at a jan adalat" staged by the guerrillas on Thursday at Beluaghati, they added.
The state government had recently said it is keeping a strict watch on "kangaroo courts" held by the Naxalites.

The ultras have perpetrated several crimes at Beluaghati, including massacre of over twenty people about five years ago.
