Malkangiri: Maoists slit the
throat of a village head and chopped the finger of a school
teacher on the first day of a two-day rebel-backed bandh in
Malkangiri and Koraput districts on Wednesday.

While Rama Kunja (50) was killed at Bhubanpalli, the
teacher suffered the brutality when he was trying to open the
door of his school in Malkangiri district, police said.

The bandh, which was called demanding withdrawal of
security forces, affected normal life as vehicles were off the
road and shops and educational institutions remained closed.
