The ongoing purging by the New People’s Army in Negros Occidental of suspected government informants within its ranks, called “Oplan Panghilamon” has led to the summary execution of two rebels, while another one died of torture Monday and Tuesday in the hinterlands of Escalante City and Calatrava, Col. Jonas Sumagaysay, 303rd Infantry Brigade commander, said yesterday.

Sumagaysay said one of the five suspected government informants, who is a member of the NPA Motorola platoon in northern Negros, was shot dead by his comrades Tuesday in Sitio Icogan, Brgy. Minapasok, Calatrava, while another one died of torture in Brgy. Binagyuhan, Escalante City.moremoremore
