Maoists gunned down a road contractor suspecting him to be a police informer in Orissa's Malkangiri district on the last day of their weeklong economic blockade on Friday, police said.

A group of armed ultras stormed into MV-69 village at Kalimela area, about 50 km from here, and fired at contractor Chitta Rai at a road construction site, they said.

A note left by the rebels alleged that Rai, who had undertaken construction works under rural development programmes, was a police informer, police said.

Meanwhile, vehicular movement was paralysed in south Orissa in the wake of the bandh called by the ultras from April 24 against special joint anti-Maoist operation and force mobilisation.
