Bhopal: The latest example of how Naxalites are creating terror in Madhya Pradesh has come to light. In Balaghat, Naxalites killed a man in the middle of the road calling him a 'police informer.' The Naxalites first pulled a man named Bhagchand out of his house without fear of anyone, then killed him. At the same time, a pamphlet warning people were also left out.
According to the information, the incident took place in Bamhani village under the Balaghat district. The murder is said to have been carried out by Naxalites of TADA, Malajkhand Area Committee. Police had received information on Wednesday morning that the body of a man named Bhagchand was lying in the middle of the road. Preliminary investigations revealed that the Naxalites reached Bahmani village late on Tuesday night and first pulled Bhagchand out of the house and then shot him dead calling him a police informer. According to villagers, 9 to 10 Naxalites were present at the spot with weapons while carrying out the incident. They also released pamphlets on the spot about him being a police informer.
Balaghat Superintendent of Police Abhishek Tiwari confirmed the incident. However, police are refusing to treat the deceased as a police informer. SP Abhishek Tiwari said the deceased was a munshi in Tendupatta Phad. The work of Tendupatta Turai is currently underway so it is likely that the Naxalites killed him in connection with the illegal recovery and later declared the deceased as a police informer.
