Two Maoists awarded life sentence for massacre of six

A court here today awarded life sentence to two Maoists in connection with the killing of six persons at a village in the district seven years ago.

Additional District Judge Purushottam Mishra convicted Ravindra Yadav and Musharu Yadav for the massacre that took place in Kareli village on July 02, 2011.

The court, however, acquitted three other accused in the case – Dhirendra Yadav, Rakesh Yadav and Rajram Yadav – on account of lack of evidence.

Kareli village was attacked by a group of around 80 armed members of Communist Party of India (Maoist) who shot dead six villagers and abducted nearly a dozen others.

The abductees were, later, released by the Maoists following a police operation.

An FIR was lodged at the Dharhara police station against 80 persons, out of whom five were arrested while the remaining are yet to be traced.
