Maoist Communist Centre (MCC) ultras kidnapped and later killed the Panchayat head and two others of a village in Bihar, police said on Sunday.

Around 250 MCC ultras swooped on Ropabel village late on Saturday night and after evicting the inmates, blew off the house of Gopal Sao. The ultras then kidnapped Sao, his brother Sambhu and a supporter Bhola Thakur, Superintendent of Police B Ahmad said.

Later, they killed the three by opening their stomach with sharp weapons, the SP said.

Their bodies were recovered from Charkhi Pathar village, about 45 km from the district headquarters on Sunday, Ahmad said.

Police suspected old enmity as the reason behind the incident. Gopal Sao was earlier in touch with the banned outfit but later dissociated himself after some differences, police said.

Intensive raids are being conducted to nab the ultras, the SP said.
