Bhubaneswar: Two days after being attacked by unidentified miscreants on National Highway 5 in Berhampur, Aska assembly constituency's Congress candidate Manoj Kumar Jena succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Bhubaneswar on Friday.

Jena had been attacked on Wednesday while returning from Bhubaneswar when he had stopped for easing himself at a deserted spot. He sustained gunshot and stab wounds on his body and was admitted to MKCG Medical College and Hospital.

Later, he had been shifted to AMRI hospital in Bhubaneswar where he breathed his last today morning.

Political and business rivalry was the reason behind the murder as Jena was caretaker of two foreign liquor units running in name of his mother and he had created his political identity at a very young age, said Aska Youth Congress President Amit Parida.

He further informed that though FIR has been lodged at BNPur Police Station on the day of the incident and police has assured to nab the culprits by forming two squads, they are still clueless.
