Two villagers have been killed by the activists of the CPI (Maoist) at a 'kangaroo court' in the district, police said.
The bodies of Harbar Singh and Chetu Singh were found at Baresand village on Tuesday, Deputy Superintendent of Police Ashwini Sinha said.
“The Maoists claimed responsibility for the killing in a note left near the bodies. They accused the duo of being brokers and indulging in theft," he said.
Sinha said Harbar and Chetu were taken away from their homes by the Maoists on Sunday. A 'kangaroo court' was convened in the forests which pronounced the death sentence.
