Ajit Kumar was killed and Umashankar received multiple splinter injuries when the Naxalites fired indiscriminately last night, the police said.

They were chased away by villagers, but not before the extremists set fire to a jeep and five motorcycles.

An anti-Naxal operation is on in the area, the police said.
