Boudh: A man hacked his son-in-law’s leg leaving him in a critical state at Dunguriguda under Kantamal Police limits here on Tuesday.
The victim, Saurabh Dandia, was in love with the accused Sashi Mahalik’s daughter and married her two months ago. Sashi opposed the match and was unhappy about the marriage, said locals.
The couple resided in Barapadar and the girl was visiting her parents’ place for the first time. As per rituals, Saurabh came to pick her up. In a mood for revenge, Sashi attacked Saurabh with a sharp weapon and hacked his leg.
Saurabh was rushed to Sonepur Hospital in a critical state. He was later shifted to VIMSAR, Burla when his condition worsened.
Victim’s father, Chitrasen Dandia has lodged a complaint and police have begun a probe into the matter.
