His body was spotted by the locals outside the village in the morning following which they informed police.

Maoist activities in Kerala on rise
An alarming increase in the activity of Naxals has been detected by security agencies recently in Kerala where the Left Wing Extremists have started perpetrating violent acts by espousing the cause of tribals. Officials said security agencies have found that the Western Ghats Special Zonal Committee of the CPI (Maoist) have launched a “series of actions” in the southern state, begining with vandalising forest department establishments in Wayanad and Palakkad districts recently.
There are ten identified Naxal violence-affected states like Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Bihar and Maharashtra. “The red extremists are raising issues of alleged environmental pollution due to mining and other quarrying activities and the high-handedness of police and forest department officials which leads to the dispalcement of tribals from these areas. They are trying to take up cudgels on behalf of tribals and their rights,” they said. They said these developments are alarming as “Kerala has never seen such incidents occuring with so much stead in the recent past.” There had been some reports of Naxal activities in the state in the period between 1960-70s.
The agencies have specifically found that the Maoists, through their local communication channels, are trying to highlight the alleged “misreable” condition of the tribals of Manjeeri area of Malappuram district. “They are spreading the message that the tribals’ plight in the state and in these specific areas is because of the indifference of forest and tribal welfare departments and alleged inaction by the state police,” they said. The agencies have informed the security establishment that Maoists have raised an armed squad in Malappuram district to unleash violence against state government officials and police.
In redrawing Red Corridor, Centre faces a few red flags
The NDA government is set to redraw the Naxal corridor in the country — striking off several existing districts from the list and adding new ones based on their “potential of becoming a new hub for Maoists”. Sources said nine districts in the Tamil Nadu-Kerala-Karnataka trijunction, one in Bihar, and two in Orissa would be added to the list of districts affected by Left Wing Extremism (LWE). The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) will soon circulate a cabinet note to redraw the Red Corridor since the move also has financial implications. The new additions would be Malappuram, Wayanad and Kannur in Kerala, Mysore, Kodagu, Udupi, Chikmagalur and Shimoga in Karnataka, Erode in Tamil Nadu, Saran in Bihar, and Boudh and Sonepur districts in Orissa.
