Bhubaneswar: Tension prevailed and vehicular movement on Soro-Kupari road in Balasore district was disrupted as villagers of Tentei gram panchayat blocked the road at Airi in protest against police inaction in the incident of mysterious death of two Class X student, Priyanka Dash and Laxmipriya Dash, in the latter’s house in Mallick Sahu of Tentei village on August 11.
Priyanka’s father had lodged an FIR at the Soro police station alleging the incident to be a case of murder and seeking action against culprits.
It may be noted that Laxmipriya, daughter of Birendra Dash of Tenti village and Priyanka Das, daughter of Brundaban Dash of Baripada village, had slept in Laxmipriya’s house after coming from tuition on August 11 night. Shockingly, they were found dead in sleep on the next morning.
On being informed by villagers, the Soro police had seized the bodies and registered a case.
“We want that the police unearth the incident and take stringent action against the culprit without further delay,” demanded agitating villagers.
