Bijapur (PTI): The Maoist allegedly killed two of their own cadres, a couple who were planning to get married and had eloped from a camp. The incident took place in the forests of Chattisgarh’s Bijapur district, police said.
The couple had eloped from a camp, in a remote forest under Gangaloor police station limits. One other person was also killed in the same area in a separate attack, police official said. “The police received information through multiple sources about the killings in the Gangaloor area and further details are being gathered,” IGP (Bastar Range) Sundarraj P told PTI.
“Preliminary reports suggest Maoists’ militia platoon commander Kamlu Punem and militia member Mangi had eloped from a Maoist camp to get married. But their colleagues traced them and killed them after holding a ‘jan adalat ‘ in Indinaar village,” the officer said.
Punem was wanted for 11 Maoist-related incidents, while Mangi was named in three such offences, he added.
