Odisha: Youth who migrated to Gujarat in search of job returns home with severed hands

Baliguda: A youth had earlier migrated to Gujarat to eke out his living and support the family members. However, the pity is that the 29-year-old migrant worker Angad Mallick from Dahalapadi Sahi of Ward No-2 under Baliguda civic limits in Kandhamal returned home today with severed hands.

Angad had left his home without informing anyone in the family after he was lured by another youth from the village named Rabi Sahani on April 27. On the same day, Angad got an advance of Rs 8,000 from a middleman and was assured that he will be given more money after reaching the workplace.

The migrant worker was rescued while he was undergoing treatment in a Sevashram at Palara locality under Bhuj taluka of Kachchh district in Gujarat. The youth is married and has a daughter.

“Angad left home nearly two and half months ago and he has now become dependent on others. The family of the migrant worker had searched for him at all possible locations. Subsequently, they filed an FIR with Baliguda police, saying that Angad had left the house and gone somewhere along with Rabi Sahani. When a search operation by local police was underway, an NGO activist Rituben Berma from Palara informed the police team on June 22 giving the whereabouts of the youth,” an official said.

Angad was severely injured in a fatal accident and lost his both hands, Rituben had stated. Angad’s elder brother Ratnakar and brother-in-law Ranjit went to Palara and brought him back home.

“I did not know the place where I alighted from the train. Later, Rabi went somewhere but did not return thereafter. Some miscreants then beat me severely and I lost my consciousness. When I got back my sense, I found myself at the Sevashram,” the migrant worker said with tears in his eyes.

“A detailed probe is still on,” the IIC of Baliguda PS Babashankar Saraf informed.
