Sahu was fatally shot in front of his family members at his Chottenagar village home around 9 p.m. by two unidentified assailants who then fled the scene. Sahu was taken to a nearby hospital in Chhotenagar and afterwards sent to the Narayanpur district, where he passed away from his wounds.

When the police started their inquiry, they disclosed that they had not discovered any Maoist literature or documents that claimed responsibility for the deaths. Police believe that the Maoists may be responsible for the deaths, nevertheless.

Inspector General of Police, Bastar range said,

“Prima facie the incident seems to be the handiwork of a small action team of Maoists but we are investigating the killing from all angles. A combing operation has been launched in a nearby forest,”
