Berhampur: Tension gripped Rugumu village under Badagada police limits in Ganjam district today after dead body of a youth was found near a canal in neighbouring Sheragada village. The youth was missing from the village for three days.
The deceased has been identified as Mithun Swain.
Some locals first spotted the body of Mithun lying near Harabhangi canal this morning and called up Badagada Police, which reached the spot and seized it. The body was in a dilapidated condition.
However, family members of the deceased suspected it to be a case of murder after reaching the spot and blamed police’s negligence for it. They informed that, while a missing case has been registered with Badagada Police since Tuesday, it did not take timely action to trace Mithun.
Police have launched an investigation to find out the cause behind the death of the youth.
