The bodies of three people abducted by Maoists three days ago were found in Bihar's Munger district Tuesday morning, police said.


A group of armed Maoists had abducted five villagers near Basudeopur village Saturday and soon after, killed two of them by slitting their throats.


"Maoists killed two of the five abducted Saturday night. Three were killed last (Monday) night and their bodies were found (today) Tuesday," said K. Chandra, a district police officer.

The three men were killed at Rampur village under Haveli-Kharagpur subdivision of Munger, about 150 km from here.


Police said the Maoists abducted and killed the victims for collecting levies from contractors, businessmen and government officials by claiming to be members of the outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist.


Munger is considered a Maoist stronghold.
