Raipur: A villager was killed allegedly by Naxals who suspected him to be a police informer in Maoist-hit Dantewada district of southern Chhattisgarh, police said on Friday.

The murder came to light this morning when some villagers informed police about the blood-stained body of Manendra lying on a road near Nareli Ghat village, a senior police official said.

A native of Uttar Pradesh, Manendra had shifted to Bacheli few years back, he said.

Prima facie it appears that the victim's hands and legs were tied before slitting his throat. Later, the Naxals allegedly threw him on the road, he said.

A note was recovered near the body in which the extremists claimed that they punished Manendra for allegedly acting as a police informer, the official said.

The note also mentioned those who serve as police informers will not be spared, he said.

Security forces have launched a combing operation in the region to nab the culprits, he added.
