Maoists allegedly killed two villagers in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh on the suspicion of being police informers, police said Thursday.
The incident took place in Karigundam village under Kistaram police station area on Wednesday, a local police official said.
The slain villagers were identified as Podiyam Mutta and Koko Lachhu, he added.
