Maharashtra: Naxals kill 2 on suspicion of being police informers

Gadchiroli: Two people were killed by Naxals on Saturday on suspicion of being police informers, taking the total number of deceased to seven in the last fifteen days.

The incident comes two days after Naxals set ablaze vehicles here in the villages of Kurkheda, Korchi and Potegaon.
