Jamshedpur: Two persons working for the Maoists were on Friday shot dead by the rebels after they allegedly misappropriated levy money collected by them in Naxal-hit West Singhbum district.

A police team, which rushed to Panchpahiya village, about 110 km from here, and recovered the bodies, has identified the victims as Vijay Dhanwar and Mahavir Mahto, Superintendent of Police Arun Kumar Singh said.

Singh said the victims were working for the ultra outfit and engaged in levy collection for the outfit.

The duo allegedly misappropriated the levy money, leading to the incident, he said, adding Dhanwar and Mahto were picked by a group of Maoists from Lailore village and shot dead about 5 km away near Panchpahiya in the wee hours.

However, the Maoists left some leaflets on the spot claiming that the duo were killed for being police informers, Singh said.
