Odisha judge’s death mystery deepens as family alleges foul play
Cuttack: The death case of POCSO court judge Subash Kumar Behari took a shocking turn with allegations by his family members claiming it to be a murder.
Subash Behari has been killed by his wife and brother-in-law (wife’s brother), alleged the family members, a day after the POCSO court judge was found dead under mysterious circumstances at his official quarters here in the city.
“Neither was he allowed to visit our house nor speaking to me. The brother and sister duo killed my son,” lamented Subash Behari’s bereaved mother Tulasi Behari.
The deceased’s cousin claimed that the incident was a murder as there were injury marks on his body.
“It was a pre-planned murder but given the colour of suicide. We were not allowed to see the body nor the body was handed over to us. They cremated the body at Puri Swargadwar,” alleged the deceased judge’s brother Subrat Behari demanding for the CBI inquiry into the case.
The complaint in this regard has been lodged at the Markat Nagar Police Station, said the family.
On Friday, the 49-year-old POCSO court judge was found dead at his official quarters in CDA Sector-9 area of Odisha’s Cuttack city.
