Thursday, August 26, 2010 08:33:43 AM, IANS

Raipur: A mob hacked a police constable to death in a Chhattisgarh village Wednesday after he gunned down two civilians in an inebriated condition.

The incident took place in Bakarkatta village in the state's Maoist insurgency-hit Rajnandgaon district, some 225 km west of Raipur.

"District Force constable Ashwani Verma shot dead two residents - Dinesh and Bhagwan - over some minor dispute. As the news of the civilians' killing spread, a large number of people gathered and killed the constable with sharp-edged weapons locally called 'tangia'," sources at the police headquarters here told IANS.

The sources added that Rajnandgaon District Superintendent of Police B.N. Meena left for the site with additional forces to assess the situation.

Reports reaching here said that a large number of people gathered at Bakarkatta and raised slogans against the police for the civilian killings.

"The situation is very tense there...residents are very upset after the policeman took out his service revolver and killed two people in their early 30s. Additional forces have reached the village and are trying to calm the protesters, who refused to hand over the cop's body to the police," a local policeman told IANS over phone.
