Maoists kill two home guards in Bastar

RAIPUR: The outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) killed two Chhattisgarh home guards at a ” jan adalat” (people’s court) in an undisclosed forested pocket in restive Bastar region for defying their diktat, a police official said Sunday.

The bodies of Moriyam Mangu and Anand Jasba, who were in their 20s — were found ON Saturday on a roadside in a jungle pocket in Cherpal area under Bijapur district, some 450 km south of state capital Raipur. The two persons were missing since January 31 this year.

Officials here at the police headquarters confirmed that a few leaflets were also found along with the bodies, in which the Maoists said the cops were killed at a “jan adalat” on charges of teaming up with authorities for anti-Maoist drives and also committing offences against the public.

In one of the leaflets, the guerrillas have asked youths of the 40,000 sq km conflict zone of Bastar region to stay away from joining the police force.
