A 17-year-old boy was killed on Wednesday night by Naxals in Maharashtra's Gadchiroli district, police said.
A group of 20-25 Naxals stormed into Manoj Hidko's house in Bhimankhoji in Korchi tehsil and shot him in the head, killing him on the spot, an official said.
"The ultras suspected Hidko was a police informer. We have registered a case and probe is underway," he added.
