Kabisuryanagar: A man brutally hacked his son-in-law to death over suspected family feud in Jhadabai village under Kabisuryanagar police limits in Ganjam district last night.

The deceased has been identified as Manu Reddy of Raulabandha village.

The murder took place late in the night on Friday after a heated argument erupted between the deceased and his father-in-law Jagannath Reddy over a petty issue.
