Sundergarh: The residence of local block Chairman was under the attack of Sibanathpur villagers protesting the mysterious death of a newly-wed woman under Tikayatpalli police limits in Bonai today.
Reportedly, the block Chairman had arranged the marriage of one Ganesh Kishan with a woman named Rashmita of Nikitamal village. After the marriage, Rashmita was staying away from her husband due to some dispute.
On Monday night, Rashmita died under mysterious circumstances. Following this, her family members alleged that she had been murdered. While cops began a probe into the incident, husband Ganesh has been held in connection with the death.
After Rashmita’s post-mortem, her family members sought help from the Block Chairman for her last rites but the Chairman refused. Expressing displeasure over this, the villagers pelted stones at the residence of the Block Chairman and ransacked her property. Reports stated that the block Chairman along with her family members have fled the village.
