The incident took place on Monday night in Iragaon village where 32-year-old Lokesh Kumar was hacked to death when he was returning to work place after having meals at home, Kondagaon Superintendent of Police D Shravan said.

Around 4-5 naxals stopped Kumar on his way from Patelpara area and attacked him with an axe, the SP said.

Soon after the incident, a police party was rushed to the spot, the officer said, adding a man hunt has been launched to nab the assailants.

After Supreme Court rapped Chhattisgarh government for recruiting tribal youths as Special Police Officers (SPOs) during Salwa Judum (anti-Maoist movement) days, it recruited SPOs as assistant constables.
