Kamakhyanagar: Some unidentified miscreants gunned down Dhenkanal Biju Yuva Janata Dal (BYJD) president and a famous business personality of Kamakhyanagar area Jashobanta Parida following a fatal attack on his car in front of Gandhi temple under Kamakhyanagar police limits here on Monday.

The attack took place minutes after Jashobanta left his home boarding his Tata Indigo car (Registration No. OR 02 BZ 5015) in the morning. A group of four Bolero-borne assailants followed his car from a few distance and hurled at least eight bombs targeting it between Kamakhyanagar Post Office and Gandhi Temple stretch of road. After the vehicle got badly damaged in the attack, Jashobanta stopped it before the post office and tried to escape. The miscreants fired five rounds of bullet targeting Jashobanta, soon after he alighted the car and fled away.

Jashobanta, who received gun shots on his head and chest was first rushed to Kamakhyanagar hospital and died while being shifted to SCB Medical in Cuttack.

Informing on the incident Dhenkanal SP Santosh Nayak said it appears to be a case of planned killing from the circumstantial evidences. All routes connecting the area with neighbouring districts have been sealed. Sniffer dogs and scientific squad have been engaged in investigation, he added.

Jashobanta had been attacked in a similar fashion four years ago over business rivalry. The leader remained admitted in SCB Medical in Cuttack after receiving three gun shots in an attack carried out by a group of miscreants before a medicine shop in Kamakhyanagar on January 3, 2014. At that time police had arrested a trader from Jagatsinghpur’s Kujang area identified as Santanu Panda.
