Suspected Maoists have killed two persons in Giridih branding them as police informers.

The bodies with their throats slit were found on the Giridih-Dumri road near Palganj on Wednesday morning, the police said in Giridh.

The victims were identified as Bhubaneswar Sao and Sunder Manjhi, the police.

A note, found near the bodies, read that the Maoists had been successful in eliminating five persons whose tip-off allegedly led to the killing of the proscribed outfit's self-styled area commander Kawang in an encounter with the police earlier this month.

The naxal-infested district witnessed eight persons being killed by the Maoists in December.
