"More than 20 armed rebels dragged Dinabandhu Mantri and Sadananda Sual Singh, a village guard, out of their homes at Katama village at about 2 am. The Maoists tied their hands with ropes and killed them," Superintendent of Police Sanjib Arora said.
Leafets warning people against joining police force or providing help to them were left behind by the rebels. The ultras also pasted posters containing threat against police informers.
"People who will join police force or work for them will meet with similar fate," the leaflets warned.
