Maoists kill tribal kabaddi player in Chhattisgarh

The police were outraged after Maoists killed a tribal kabaddi player during a village-level match to mark the Republic Day celebrations.

The match was organised between teams from two villages in Umarpal, Rajnandgaon district, on Sunday. The Maoists suddenly came and opened fire at Parmeshwar (30), a resident of Kanker district. Another player, Birbal, was injured. Parmeshwar's brother Amrit is an auxiliary constable in Kanker.

"This is against all human values. Killing a sportsman for no reason is spreading terror. What was his fault? They talk about anti-Capitalism, but kill only tribals. Have they ever touched any Capitalist?," said DGP Ramniwas.

"This is a Kasab-like incident. Local boys were playing in their village. Maoists came and opened fire with AK-47. It was a game between local teams, administration or the police had absolutely nothing to do with it. This is among the worst kind of terrorist acts Maoists have ever committed," Rajnandgaon SP Sanjeev Shukla said.

General secretary of Chhattisgarh Kabaddi Association Rambisal Sahu condemned the incident.
