Jajpur: Body of a 30-year-old man was today found in his dhaba beside NH 16 at Panikoili this morning. The deceased identified as Rabindra Sahu was found with throat slit.
Though the exact reason behind the murder is yet to be ascertained, police suspect family dispute behind the crime. Police have found a knife from the spot.
Locals said that the dhaba was locked from outside and they informed the police after Sahu did not respond. “His family members said that he was staying away from his family for the past few months over family feud. They also claimed that he had befriended with drug addicts,” said a police official.
Police said that Sahu was also arrested and sent to jail in recent past for assaulting his wife. Sahu was released from jail few days ago. “We suspect the involvement of more than one accused in the case,” added the police official.
