Kendrapara, Oct 18 (LocalWire): A 45-year-old man allegedly killed his father in a drunken stupor in village Ayatana under Rajkanika police station of Kendrapara district on Thursday night.
Sudhakar Rout, 74, was killed when he abused his son for returning to the house in an inebriated state. In sudden rage, Sukant attacked his father with a wooden plank and Sudhakar sustained serious head injuries. He succumbed on his way to the hospital while Sukant fled the village.
Police seized the blood stained wooden plank from the spot and sent the body to the local hospital for autopsy.
‘The motive behind the killing could not be ascertained and we also do not know the modus operandi and the purpose behind the murder. The cause of hostility between the father and son is being investigated,’ said the sub-divisional police officer, Pattamundai, Ranjan De.
‘Unchecked flow of illicit liquor have wrecked havoc in the locality and following this anti-social activities have also gone up. Police in many areas have turned a blind eye to the illicit trade and as a result a father had to die in the hands of his drunkard son,’ said Amarbara Biswal, a social worker of Kendrapara.
