Cuttack, Dec 2:
Cuttack Sadar police have launched a manhunt to nab Jagannath Samal (21), Balaram Samal (14) both sons of Ramesh Samal of Kajipatana, for killing their uncle (father’s younger brother) Umesh Samal (35) on Sunday night.
According to police, Jagannath and Balaram stabbed Umesh to death with a knife at 10 pm on Sunday night over an old rivalry.
Umesh had a land dispute with his elder brother Ramesh. On August 15 this year, Umesh had absconded after attacking Ramesh. A case under section 307 (attempt to murder) was registered against Umesh at that time.
When Umesh came to his house on Sunday night, Ramesh’s two sons attacked him with a knife resulting in his death on the spot. Jagannath and Balaram then fled the place, police sources said.
Sadar police have registered a case under section 302/34 of the IPC and are conducting raids to arrest the accused.
