Verma is the third person to be executed by Maoists in the last 24 days in two villages of Rajnandgaon district on suspicion of being a police informant.
On January 24, Ramsay Gadve (30) a resident of Morarpani village was executed by sharp-edged weapons by a squad of CPI (Maoist) cadres and a day later, Inder Sai Mandavi (75), a resident of Kamkheda village was executed by the Maoists. Both were relatives of panchayat representatives.
The police estimate that there are about 200 armed cadres of the CPI (Maoist) working in the MMC zone. Police say that since operations against the CPI (Maoist) have increased in Bastar, the Maoists were moving towards the MMC zone.
