Police have begun investigation after they received information about Naxals reported to have killed three villagers in Narayanpur district in Chattisgarh, officials said on Thursday.

The police, however, is probing the authenticity of information since the area from where killings were reported, is Naxal-infested and it could be a trap by Maoists, police officials said here.

We are probing the reported killing of three villagers in Hitulwad village, around three km from CRPF camp Ekda in Narayanpur police station jurisdiction, by Naxals, they told PTI.

Police received information that Naxals have thrown bodies of three villagers on road after killing them.

So far no one has registered a complaint in this connection nor any details of the victims were received, officials said.
