GUNTUR: The CPI-Maoists shot dead a farmer, who is also the president of the local water users association of Guttikonda village in Piduguralla mandal, in the wee hours of Friday.

The farmer, identified as Nalavolu Naraiah (75) was trying to cultivate on some endowment lands, which the Maoists had already distributed to the Dalits and the backward communities in the village.

Early on Friday, four armed Naxals came and jolted Naraiah out of his sleep. He was shot from point blank range. He died on the spot.

Naraiah’s family has been enjoying the endowment lands in the village, but the Naxals had distributed the land to the Dalits in 2002. When the family members defied the Naxal diktats and tried to cultivate the lands, the Naxals had killed Naraiah’s relatives N Borraiah and N Srinivasa Rao in 2003 and 2004.

Piduguralla CI B Seetaramayya, who visited the place of incident, arranged for shifting Naraiah’s body for post-mortem at the government hospital in Gurajala.
