Baliguda: The decomposed body of a man who was missing for the last several days was recovered from Budapadar forest near Kurtamgarh under Tumudibandha police limits in Kandhamal district on Friday.
According to reports, one Piuna Nayak of Kurtamgarh left his house on December 25 to visit his employer’s house but did not return since then.
After searching for him at all possible places, the kin of Nayak lodged an FIR with the local police. However, police couldn’t trace the missing man.
Some locals found the body of the deceased man in the forest and informed the family members, who rushed to the spot and identified Piuna.
Suspecting it as a case of murder, the family members and the villagers staged a road blockade on National Highway-59 on Kurtamgarh-Muniguda later on the day by burning tyres and placing stones to press their demand to arrest the culprit at the earliest.
