Koraput(Odisha): Maoist killed a 50 year-old tribal at a remote village in the south Odisha's Koraput district suspecting him to be a police informer,
police said today.


The tribal's body was found today with his throat slit and a letter left near it said he was killed after being identified to be a police informer, said Y J Rao,
sub-divisional police officer (SDPO), Laxmipur.


The victim, identified as a resident of Manasdapadar village, was also accused of extorting money from people by posing to be a Maoist agent.


A group of seven to eight armed cadres came to the village and forcibly took him away from his house while he was sleeping.  His body was recovered this morning from a jungle about 50 meters from his house.


Rao has rejected the Maoist allegation that the man was a police informer. "There is no truth behind the allegation," he said.
