Narayanpur District, November 21, 2023: A 25-year-old villager was executed, allegedly by cadres of the CPI (Maoist), in Chhattisgarh’s Narayanpur district on suspicion of being a police informant, a senior official said on Tuesday.
Police are gathering more information about the execution, which took place in Gome village under Sonpur police station limits, Inspector General of Police (Bastar Range) Sundarraj P said.
As per preliminary information, the villager, identified as Amar Uikey, was executed by a squad of Maoists on Monday evening after holding a ‘jan adalat’ (people’s court), he said.
“We are verifying the information and gathering further details,” said the senior IPS officer, adding a police team has been sent to the spot.
Police sources shared a picture of a purported Maoist banner in which the Rowghat Area Committee of the CPI (Maoist) claimed they have given a ‘death punishment’ to Uikey in “jan adalat” as he was acting as an “informant” of the District Reserve Guard (DRG), an anti-Maoist unit of the state police.
The Maoists also claimed Uikey provided a “tip-off” to police that led to an encounter between a squad of CPI (Maoist) cadres and security personnel near Gome village on October 21 of this year. On that day, police had claimed two Maoists were killed in an encounter near Gome village located on the border of Narayanpur and Kanker districts.
