TANAHU-They were 15-16 years old, the Maoist youth who tortured and killed Raju Sharma. He had fled after being detained by Maoists and the rebels followed him back to his village in Sisneri. First they shot him in the knees, he fell down and while he was writhing in pain they smashed his head repeatedly with a boulder until he died. Sisneri's villagers are now terror-stricken and too scared to even venture out of their homes. Human rights activists who visited the site have condemned the brutal killing. INSEC representative Prakash Chandra Bhattarai said the murder proves that the Maoists have no respect for an individual's right to life.
