Mayurbhanj (Orissa), July 15 (ANI): The Naxals stabbed a 15-year-old boy to death at Handibhanga village in Orissa's Mayurbhanj District on Wednesday night.
Around 30 suspected Maoists, who came looking for the boy's father suspecting him to be a police informer, tied the boy's wrist and then they went at him with a knife.
He bled to death near his house on the Orissa-Bengal border.
This is the first time in Orissa that the extremists have targeted such a young boy.
The killing took place a day after Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik requested the Centre to include Mayurbhanj among the districts eligible for grant of funds under Security Related Expenditure. (ANI)
