Bhubaneswar: Tension gripped Dalagaon in Jajpur district along the Daitari-Paradip highway as Saroi villagers sat on a dharna keeping a youth’s dead body on the road this morning.
The villagers blocked the highway in protest against mysterious death of Deepak Dalei, whose body was found from a roadside at Panikoili late on Friday night. Family members alleged that Deepak was murdered and dumped on the roadside and demanded that culprits be arrested soon.
Due to agitation, vehicular movement has been disrupted on the highway. Police have reached the spot and are trying to placate the situation.
