Jhargram, Jan 27 (ANI): A highly decomposed body of a villager, allegedly killed by Maoists, was recovered by locals from a deep pit in West Bengal's Jhargram district.
The victim was identified as Mohammad Ali, a local worker of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M), who went missing last week.
Family members of Ali asserted that he was killed due to the simmering ideological rivalry between the Maoists and the CPI-M leadership.
Villagers said the body was detected by chance after a dog began to violently sniff around the spot, which later turned out to be a grave.
"The bodies were detected after a dog sat here and started sniffing near the crime scene. The spot where he was sniffing turned out to be a grave, where were found a head. There might be two bodies in the area, though we have been able to recover only one," said Sobarat Ali. (ANI)
