Maoists kill villager in Bastar’s Bijapur

Raipur: Maoists have murdered yet another villager in Bijapur in Bastar division — the third in four days, apart from two of their own cadres.
The victim, 32-year-old grocery shop owner Jagat Sori, was dragged out of his home in Ketulnar village, around 30km from the district headquarters, on Monday night and killed him. He was asleep when Maoists barged into his house and took him away. Kutru police officers said they are not sure why he was killed. Sori’s family members and some villagers have filed an FIR, saying it was a Maoist attack. Police have questioned a few villagers who were around when the Maoists struck but didn’t get any leads on the motive. They are interviewing the victim’s kin and some villagers.
Sori’s body will be handed over to his family after autopsy, said police. A few days ago, Maoists had killed a mentally ill person after dragging him away from his home on the suspicion that he was a police informer.
