Maoists on Saturday killed two persons including a village ward member in Odisha's Malkangiri district, police said.

Village wards member Tulasi Behera and Jaga Madakami were found in a forest near Bhejangiwada village, about 700 kms southwest of Bhubaneswar.

The rebels had abducted them along with four others on Thursday from Chintalwada and Ramaguda villages under Kalimela police station.
