Chikamagalur: Police informant killed

Posted by Indian Vanguard on June 4, 2007

Chikamagalur, Jun 4: After a few days Naxalites have hit news headlines once again, but in a ‘bloody’ manner. A group of 5 Naxalites shot a shopkeeper dead at Gandaghatta near Kigga of Shringeri here on Sunday June 3 night.

The deceased has been identified as Kesamudi Venkatesh (45) of Gandaghatta. He was shot dead in front of his wife Madhu and son in their shop-cum-house at Gandaghatta around 8.30 on Sunday night. When the Naxalites came to the shop, Venkatesh was closing it down. But Naxalites pulled him out, stabbed him, burnt his mobike and finally shot him in his head from a point-blank range.

While one Kalasappa who was in the shop fled the place immediately, neighbors closed their doors in fear when Naxalites attacked Venkatesh. After shooting Venkatesh to death, Naxals said to have warned the locals of same fate if any one of them tries to pass on information about them to police or ANF.

One Dinakar of Kuthloor in Beltangady taluk of Dakshina Kannada who had identified himself with the Naxalites had been shot dead by police at Kigga on December 26. He was shot dead in front of Ventakesh’s brother Yogappa’s house. Naxalites were of the firm opinion that it was owing to Venkatesh that police had trapped Dinakar and shot him dead.

This for the second time that Naxals have shot down a civilian. Earlier another police informer Sheshaiah was shot dead at Menasinahadya on May 17, 2005 at avenge Naxal leader Saket Rajan’s killing by police. Later Chandrakant, an agriculturist from Hemmige near Shringeri was attacked and injured by Naxals on November 21, 2005. Now once again the Naxals have resorted to violence and killed a civilian.
