Nagpur (Nagar): On Wednesday, maoists killed a 38-year-old disabled tribal resident in Malampudur village of Bhamragarh taluka, south Gadchiroli.Although Maoists are yet to make any excuses for their barbaric act, security officials suspect it was a reaction to the 17,000-strong turnout for police recruitment in the district on June 19.The sheer number of candidates competing for the 136 police constable positions will, despite their odds, have stoked the Maoists' scorn.This year, the rebels have been attacking vulnerable tribal groups in the district.

Luckykumar Oksa, a resident of Bhusewada village, was a resident at a tendu leave collection center, according to police reports.He was living in Malampudur village, which is close to the collection center.In the night, maoists dragged him out of his house, took him to a nearby forest, and killed him with a knife.According to police superintendent Ankit Goyal, Maoists left no pamphlet claiming to have attacked the tribal victim.

Maoists also killed many people this year without actually committing any wrongdoing, he said.Goyal said the involvement of tribal youth from remote areas in the police recruitment campaign is not to be rejected as the cause of Maoist rage, as well as their targeting of innocent tribal people to terrorize people.According to reports, Oksa may have been murdered due to a financial controversy.Maoists may have been alarmed by Oksa's unfulfilled promises or wrongdoing, which may gradually come to the fore.
