Aman in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada district was killed by Naxals after they accused him of being a police informer, an official said on Saturday.
Mirya Manjal’s body was found on Saturday morning near a private firm’s beneficiation plant under Kirandul police station limits, the official said.
Manjal was a resident of Pullum village, the official said.
“A Maoist pamphlet has been recovered from the spot. It accuses Manjal of being a police informer. The pamphlet further claims Manjal was killed after a so-called jan adalat (Naxal kangaroo court) was held,” the official said, adding that Manjal was not a police informer.
The officila said that no eye-witnesses had come forward so far to help the police.
