Anandpur: An elderly woman met watery grave while taking bath in Baitarani river in Padmapur village under Anandpur police limits in Keonjhar district on Friday.
The deceased has been identified as Dali Sahu.
The victim who went to Baitarani river this morning to take bath presumably slipped into the river due to negligence and drowned.
