Bhubaneswar: In a very horrific incident, a youth has been brutally murdered at Sunabeda forest in Koraput on Monday.
The youth’s throat was found slit.
The deceased has been identified as Ranj Guntha of Simageda village under Patangi block in Koraput district. While the reason of murder and the identification of the assailants are yet to be confirmed, suspicion arise that he might have been murdered by Maoists, sources said.
His dead body was recovered from the nearby Sunabeda jungle, while the police have started investigations into the matter.
The ultras on the backdrop of the police’s attempts to bring them out of their comfort zone has been able to bring hundreds of sympathisers into main stream, while such a scenario might be the reason for the red rebels to vent out their anger, sources added.
