Maoists kill two in Maharashtra

Gadchiroli, Maharashtra, Apr 26 : On a day the Maoists released an abducted lawmaker in Odisha, the rebels struck again in western state of Maharashtra killing two villagers in Gadchiroli district on Thursday, police said.

"Two villagers were killed. One of them is a Naxalite who had surrendered of what we gathered till now," Rahul Seth, Additional Superintendent of Police, Anti-Naxal Operations, Maharashtra, told IBNS.

He said the report of ten villagers being abducted is untrue.

"We have no such news. It is a false news doing the rounds," he said, amid reports on TV channels that ten villagers were abducted.

"We got news of the incident from the border area [Chhattisgarh] at around noon," he said, adding that the killing could be the result of an internal squabble of the rebels.

On Mar 27, at least 12 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in the same Gadchiroli district when the vehicle in which they were travelling was blown up by Maoists.

Gadchiroli is a district in Maharashtra that borders the worst Maoist affected state of Chhattisgarh where the rebels are holding in captivity a district collector.

Earlier on Thursday, Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MLA Jhina Hikaka was released by Odisha Maoists after 32 days in captivity.

The Maoists handed over Hikaka's custody to his wife Kaushalya and Koraput-based lawyer Nihar Patnaik in Balipeta near the Narayanpatna forests.
