Bhubaneswar: Another barbaric incident has come to the fore where a youth was hacked to death at Nihalprasad Nityanandpur in Dhenkanal district last night.
The body with several deep injury marks and an eye uprooted was recovered from his own house early this morning. The deceased was identified as Purna Chandra Behera. He was working at a stone crusher.
While the reason behind the murder was yet to be known, it is understood from the circumstantial evidence that miscreants might have killed him at a different place and then dumped it in his house. There were no signs that suggest killing of Purna in the house where his body was found.
On being informed, police have reached the spot and started investigation.
