Koraput (Orissa), June 13 (ANI): The Orissa Police has discovered the remains of a village guard nearly six months after he was abducted by suspected Maoists from a village in the state's Koraput District.

On Saturday evening, the police recovered the remains of Jagmohan from Dhumusil village.

The incident has created panic among the villagers.

On January 3, 2010, Jagmohan's family had lodged a complaint saying that Maoists and the Chasi Muliya Adivasi Sangh, were responsible for his abduction.

"The deceased was my father-in-law. We don't know how he was killed. We don't know who killed him and threw his body," Kusumi, daughter-in-law of Jagamohan.

The villagers allege that Maoists constantly haunt and threaten them into joining their cause.

Pestered by the Maoists, many panic-stricken villagers have abandoned their homes and land.

Sunil Kumar Karu, senior police officer of the Koraput district, said officials acted upon a tip-off and found Jagmohan's body buried near a hill in Dhumusil.

"When we got the information and we dug at the place, we got the remains of the body. The wife and the children of the deceased identified the remains by the shirt and pant on the skeleton," Karu.

The police said that further investigation is in process. (ANI)
