Meanwhile, Naxals had killed two villagers in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district, on Thursday, a police official said.
According to the District Sukma Police, the Naxals killed two villagers named Madvi Ganga (Deputy Sarpanch of Tadmetla) and Kawasi Sukka (Shikshadoot) by holding ‘Jan Adalat’ (people’s court) on June 28.
“Deputy Sarpanch Madvi was making villagers & rural children aware of the benefits of public welfare schemes like the Aadhaar Card, Ration Card, Food Scheme, and Ayushman Card. Kawasi Sukka was teaching the children in sensitive areas like Tadmetla so that they could contribute to the development of society and the area”, the police said.
The police further said, “As naxals were losing their ground because people are getting aware and educated, they killed Sukka out of frustration.” (ANI)
