Bargarh: Unidentified miscreants attacked a family at Bairakapali village under Bijepur police limits in Odisha’s Bargarh district late last night killing a woman and injuring her husband and two sons critically.
According to reports, four bike-borne miscreants having their faces covered with masks barged into the house and attacked the family members with sharp weapons.
While the woman, identified as Jayashree Meher (46), died on the spot, her husband Khirod Meher (50) and two sons Devendra (18) and Balaram (25) sustained grievious injuries and were admitted to the Bijepur hospital.
Police have started investigation into the incident. The reason behind the murderous attack on the family is yet to be ascertained.
“The attack was carried out not for dacoity but for other reasons. A motorcycle has been seized from the spot and probe is underway,” said Padampur SDPO Laxmi Narayan Panda.
