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 Dayaram Hidko's house in Bhimankhoji in Korchi tehsil, took him to a bus stand nearby and shot him in the head, killing him on the spot, an official said.

"The ultras suspected the deceased was a police informer which he was not. We have registered a murder case and probe is underway," Gadchiroli Superintendent of Police Shailesh Balkawade said.
