Jharigaon: A youth was axed to death in Kadamalli village under Ichhapur panchayat in Nabarangpur district this evening. The deceased was identified as Balaram Harijan (35) of Banabhanuaguda village.
As per reports, one Debaraj Majhi had family quarrel with elder brother Sudar Majhi. A few months back, Debraj was arrested and sent to jail over his alleged involvement in a fight with Sudar.
After Debraj was released from jail, he was looking for opportunities to take revenge from Sudar. This afternoon, Debraj went to his elder brother’s house carrying an axe. As Sudar was not present at home, Debraj was waiting for him near the house.
In the meantime, Balaram reached Sudar’s house for some work. He tried to pacify Debraj. But Debraj got angry with the mediation and axed Balaram to death.
Following the incident, Debraj is absconding. Based on a complaint filed by the deceased’s family, police launched a probe into the matter and sent the body for post mortem.
