A group of armed ultras stormed into Nareti's house and dragged him out on the street. They then strangled him with a rope and threw the body on a road near the village, the police official said quoting eyewitnesses.

The ultras then fled the spot raising slogans in support of the outlawed Naxal movement, he said. A police team visited the spot this morning and sent the body for postmortem, the ASP said.

Some Maoists' pamphlets were recovered from the spot in which Nareti was branded as a "police informer", he said. A search has been launched to nab the assailants, the police official added.
