A Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) Jawan was found dead under mysterious circumstances in front of Sudam Charan Degree College at Chandanbhati in Balagir district early on Thursday morning.
The deceased Jawan was identified as Sanjay Bag of Salepali village in the district.
Bag who was posted at Phiringia in Kandhamal district had come to the village some days ago to attend his brother’s marriage.
