Berhampur, April 21 (LocalWire): Miscreants hurled bombs at the residence of an anti-social on Saturday evening at Bada Dumula under Berhampur Sadar police station, killing him.
The deceased, identified as Sushant Sahu, was a member of an anti-social gang and had at least ten cases of murder, robbery and dacoity against him in different police stations of Ganjam district.
Police didn’t specify the exact reason behind the murder but said it could be due to a previous enmity.
‘We are trying to ascertain the reason behind the incident,’ said SDPO, Berhampur Sadar, Jayant Kumar Mohapatra.
He, however, ruled out any political rivalry.
Mohapatra said motorcycle-borne, masked miscreants hurled bombs targeting Sahu, while he was sitting outside his house.
Police rushed to the spot and recovered the body and sent it for post-mortem at MKCG Medical College, here.
A force has been deployed in the village as tension prevailed. ‘Police is camping in the village and the situation is under control,’ the SDPO said.
