Banned Naxalite outfit Communist Party of India (Maoist) has decided not to chop off body parts as punishment to those found guilty in its Jan Adalat, locally known as Kangaroo court.
Besides this, the naxals have also decided to do away with death penalty. Instead, they will punish anyone found guilty of a crime as per the punishment fixed by villagers, not by its people's courts.
He informed that the decision in this regard was taken 3 days ago at the central committee meeting of the CPI-Maoist held in Gaya district.
