Samiti Member’s husband shot dead in Balangir
Balangir: Two bike-borne miscreants allegedly shot the husband of a Samiti Member dead at Bagdor Panchayat under Belapada block of Balangir district on Monday.
Two youths reportedly visited Samiti Member Banita Biswal’s house this evening. They had some discussions with Banita’s husband Lokanath Biswal. However, one of them suddenly took out a gun and opened fire at Lokanath before fleeing the scene.
Lokanath, who sustained grievous injuries on his chest following the firing, was rushed to the Belapada medical for treatment. However, he succumbed to the injury while undergoing treatment at the hospital.
