Bhubaneswar: A worker was killed and two others sustained critical injuries in Maoists’ attack at Chakradharpur Samar village near Saranda jungle in Chhattisgarh on the Odisha border last night.
The Maoists have also set ablaze about 12 vehicles, which are used in construction works, in a contractor’s camp in the village.
According to reports, Maoists had demanded extortion from the Mohanty Construction, which has undertaken a Government road project in the area. As the owner didn’t give any money, about 12 to 14 Maoists came to the village at around 10 pm on Friday and opened fire indiscriminately and set ablaze all vehicles and workers’ tents in the camp.
Police have reached the spot and started investigation.
