Naxalites gunned down a wanted dacoit in Bihar's East Champaran district for allegedly extorting money from people posing as a Maoist, police said on Monday.

"Bihkara Prasad (35) was shot dead by Naxals at Bihsunpur village in the district on Sunday. After killing him the rebels fled, leaving behind leaflets saying those trying to malign the organisation would also face the same consequence," DSP (Pakridayal sub division) MK Anand told reporters in Motihari.

Prasad was wanted in a case of dacoity, he said, adding that efforts were on to arrest the criminals.
