Maoists have shot dead a former top-ranked cadre in Giridih district for snapping ties with them, police said today.

"The bullet-ridden body of Sunil Munda, who was in the Maoist firing squad, was recovered this morning at Madhuban More between Giridih-Dumri road," Superintendent of Police, A V Homkar, told reporters here.

Munda had left the banned group following a dispute over distribution of extortion money in the ranks of the Maoists, he said.
