Boudh, Aug 16:
In a barbaric act, a father and son duo hacked to death a woman and her daughter at Boorkata village in Khuntabandh panchayat in Odisha’s Boudh district on Friday over a property dispute, police sources said.
Both the accused are on the run, they added.
The deceased have been identified as Rajni Kanhar and Danda Pera, the sources said.
Officer in-charge of Boudh police station Amulya Kumar Dhar said Mutu Kanhar and his son Sanjay Kanhar of Boorkata village allegedly hacked to death Rajni Kanhar, wife of Pardeshi Kanhar (brother of Mutu Kanhar) and Danda Pera (daughter of Pardeshi Kanhar) over a trivial issue of deceased Rajni’s goats entering Sanjay Kanhar’s fields.
