Maoists shot dead RSS Pracharak in Chattisgarh, leave pamphlet on the spot to terrorise villagers

Police on Wednesday said that Singh, believed to be RSS pracharak, was killed by suspected Maoists as a pamphlet was found at the crime scene. Singh was shot with a pistol and his body has been sent for post-mortem.

Suspected Maoists have shot dead a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activist Dadu Singh Koratiya in Konde village of Kanker district of Chattisgarh. Located about 200 kms from the state capital Raipur, Kanker, is one of the seven most affected districts of Bastar in the state.

As per the reports, police on Wednesday said that Singh, a RSS pracharak, was killed by suspected Maoists as a pamphlet was found at the crime scene. Singh was shot with a pistol and his body has been sent for post-mortem.

“We are investigating the actual motive behind the killing and whether the person killed was from RSS background”, K L Dhruv, SP Kanker said. Dhruv asserted that the left-wing terrorists have been pushed to the backfoot due to various successful operations against them in the past. He further added that this crime is their attempt to instil fear amongst the villagers.

The police have already launched a search operation in the area.

The pamphlet, which was found at the crime scene, was left by the North Bastar Divisional Committee (CPI, Maoist), wherein Koratiya has been referred to as an active RSS pracharak and an antagonist to the interests of Dalits and tribals.

“He was killed owing to his involvement in anti-tribal activities and we warn the senior leaders and workers of the BJP and the RSS to desist from such activities,” read the letter.

The police said that Koratiya was called outside his house wherein the Maoist shot him with a pistol from a close range. Last year, Koratiya had escaped an attack on his life by Maoists on the eve of Independence Day at the time he was visiting his farmland. This year, however, he succumbed to the left-wing extremism.
