Maoists kill three in Jharkhand

Maoists brutally killed three persons, beheading one, crushing another’s head with a stone and shooting dead a police informer in Jharkhand’s Khunti district.

Three Maoists barged into the house of police informer Iswari Tuti at Marangada village and shot him dead on Sunday evening, Khunti Superintendent of Police Manoj Kaushik told PTI over phone.

Tuti tried to run towards a nearby CRPF camp in the village, but he was shot down by bullets fired by the Maoists pursuing him, Mr. Kaushik said.

The SP said Tuti was not a special police officer.

Maoists decapitated another man, Sukram Munda, and took his head away at Raja bazar, he said.

A note left beside the headless body claimed that he was involved in murder, rape and robbery in the area and others like him would also meet the same fate, the SP said.

Maoists also crushed the head of an unidentified man near Naditola last night, he said.

On a tip off, a joint team of the CRPF and the police led by SP, Ranchi, A.V. Minch, found two can bombs weighing 40 kg and 10 kg at Gajmara-Tolsadih on the borders of the district on Sunday, Senior Superintendent of Police Saket Kumar Singh said.
