Mumbai: A 35-year-old man was found murdered with his throat slit in naxal-affected Gadchiroli district in east Maharashtra, police said on Saturday.
The unidentified body was found lying along the roadside between Jhuri and Kotmi villages on Friday, a local police official said.
Police suspect the involvement of naxals in the crime.
The official said that ultras had abducted a few persons from Bhamragad and Etapalli areas in Gadchiroli district in the last few days, but their relatives didn't approach the police out of fear of naxals.
A case of murder has been registered.
