Berhampur: The police have been able to retrieve the CCTV footage which captured the brutal murder of a youth at Keshapur few days back.
The video shows three to four motor-cycle borne miscreants attacking a youth on the premises of a petrol pump. The youth was first beaten up with blows. Once he fell unconscious, one among the miscreants thrashed the victim’s face with a lathi and brick.
The merciless assailant is also seen to have taken photograph of the body which was lying in a pool of blood. All this captured by a CCTV camera mounted on the petrol pump premises.
The miscreants then fled from the spot with their motorbikes. Truck driver and commuters were mute spectators to all the commotion that took place at the spot. None of them even gave a thought to rush the severely injured youth to the nearest hospital.
By dawn, the youth had succumbed. He was later identified as Shankar Pahan of Ramachandrapur. According to the police, Pahan had a previous enmity with a group of youths who nursed a grudge against him.
The incident took place last week on Thursday at around 10 pm. The accused in this case are still at large.
