Maoists kill former village chief in Telangana | Latest India News

A police officer said a letter found near Korsa Ramesh’s body said he was killed after being tried in a “people’s court” for allegedly working as a double agent.

A former village chief from Mulugu district in Telangana was found dead Wednesday in the forests of Kothapalli, days after the Maoist kidnapping on Monday, police said.

A police officer said a letter found near Korsa Ramesh’s body said he was killed after being tried in a “people’s court” for allegedly working as a double agent. Maoist secretary of the Venkatapuram-Vajedu Regional Committee, Shantha, reportedly wrote the letter, of which HT saw a copy.


Ramesh’s widow, Korsa Rajitha, earlier told local reporters that her husband was working as a driver while calling on the Maoists to release him unharmed.

In the letter, Shantha claimed that Ramesh was working for the Maoists by claiming to be their sympathizer, but passed information about them to the police. “Ramesh was in contact with the police in Venkatapuram and was transmitting vital information about the movements of the Maoists … who fell ill after consuming the same. One of the Maoists, Mr. Bhikshapathi alias Vijender, died of poisoning, ”Shanta wrote.

He blamed Ramesh for informing the police of the Maoist presence which sparked a shooting. Shantha claimed that Ramesh had recovered ??two lakh from the police for that. “We are killing him according to the people’s wish when he betrayed the people and the party.”
