Maoist guerrillas killed two tribal men in Chhattisgarh's Bastar region after suspecting that they were police spies, officials said on Wednesday.

The police on Wednesday found the bodies of Marvi Bheema and Marvi Chhanna along a roadside in a forested area in Dantewada district, some 450 km from Raipur.

"The civilians were killed on Tuesday night with sharp edged weapons and their bodies were dumped on the roadside," Superintendent of Police (Dantewada) Amresh Mishra told IANS over telephone.

Police say the killings of tribals by Maoists on charges of being police informers has seen a spurt in recent months in Chhattisgarh, mainly in the Bastar region that is made up of five districts -- Bijapur, Dantewada, Narayanpur, Kanker and Bastar.
