Raipur: In a barbaric incident, Communist Party of India (Maoist) beat a four-month-old boy to death and then buried the body infront of the baby's mother in Bijapur district of Chhattisgarh.
“The Maoists have killed a four-month-old child by brutally beating it with sticks. The child’s father has lodged a complaint with the Gangaloor police. The incident has exposed the brutal and real face of Maoists,” Bastar Inspector-General of Police SRP Kalluri was quoted by 'The Hindu'.
However, some media reports said that the Maoists hit the infant with a rod and buried the body near their camp.
It was a revenge killing as the infant's father, Tati Aayatu, his wife, daughter and kid were kidnapped by the Maoists. When Aayatu managed to give the Maoists a slip, it enraged them greatly and they took brutal revenge by killing the baby, that too in front of his mother.
The Police have registered a case against three accused Dula Oyam, Masa Tati and Mangu. They have been booked under Sections 34, 302 and 363 of the Indian Penal Code.
Meanwhile, school students today took out rallies protesting against the shocking incident.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Raman Singh on Sunday said substantial efforts have been made to tackle red menace in Chhattisgarh and Naxalism issue will be resolved considerably in the next three years.
"Substantial efforts have been made to wipe out Naxalism from the state and the issue will be solved to a certain extent in Bastar and other insurgency-hit areas in the next three years," Singh told reporters.
