A large group of Maoists descended on Nachupatina village’s Dompara area late last night and exploded bombs before firing in the air to terrorise the villagers, they said.
One group went to the house of CPI(M) supporter Amrit Aagyuan and broke open the door and forcibly took him way.
Amrit’s mother was injured when she tried to stop the Maoists, they said.
Another group of Maoists went to the house of Rohin Aagyun, Samaresh Aagyuan, Swapan Aagyuan and Prasanta Aagyuan, all belonging to one family, and forcibly took them outside.
The Maoists first beat the five persons and then shot dead and left behind some Maoist posters, they said.
CPI (M) party sources said that the five persons were supporters of the Marxist party.
Nachupatina village is located on the banks of the river Subarnarekha and close to the Orissa border.
Joint Security Forces and additional police reinforcements are being rushed to the village, they said, adding a massive manhunt has been launched to nab the Maoists.
