A village sarpanch's husband was

killed by Naxals in Sukma district of poll-bound Chhattisgarh

Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Kalmu Dhruva, the victim, was a worker of the

Communist Party of India (CPI) while his wife is sarpanch of

Bodko village, said Sukma Superintendent of Police Abhishek

Meena.

"According to villagers, he was brutally beaten to

death with sticks by the ultras," the SP said, adding that a

police team has been sent to the spot.

Naxals have called for a boycott of the Assembly

polls.

Polling in 18 constituencies in eight Naxal-affected

districts - Bastar, Kanker, Sukma, Bijapur, Dantewada,

Narayanpur, Kondagaon and Rajnandgaon -- will be held on

November 12.

CPI candidate Manish Kunjam is contesting from Konta

in Sukma district.

The remaining 72 constituencies will go to the polls

on November 20. Counting of votes will be held on December 11.
