Khurda: Four teams have been formed to nab the accused in the firing incident at a doctor's clinic in Badasankha under Khordha police limits in which paediatric specialist Manoranjan Das was injured and a medical shop owner Krushna Chandra Sahu was killed.
Khurda SP Ajay Pratap Swain informed that the teams are being headed by two Additional SPs and two senior DSPs. First team has been sent to Bhubaneswar to question the relatives of the injured doctor to ascertain the motive behind the incident.
Second team has been sent to Nayagarh to identify the accused based on the video footage collected from the CCTV footage of the clinic. Third team has been sent to Berhampur to ascertain the involvement of a contract killer in the incident.
While Das' relatives have ruled out any property dispute or previous enmity as the reason behind the attack, Sahu's family members are also clueless, said Swain.
He further informed that police is conducting its probe based on CCTV footages collected from different areas. One such CCTV footage shows a person identical with the accused going towards Baghamari in Nayagarh district. However, the said footage has been sent to Bhubaneswar for further verification.
Three empty bullet shells have been seized and the scientific team have collected blood samples from the crime spot. Doctor Das has been put on ventilator and his condition is stable, added Swain.
