Kalahandi: In a shocking incident, a woman was found buried in Tunagaon under Kokasara block here today morning. According to locals, she had been hacked to death by her son, who fled the scene after burying her.
The deceased has been identified as Lanka Bemal.
It is notable to mention here that Ramesh Bemal had attacked his mother with a sharp weapon on February 25 after a heated exchange of words between the two, following which she had been admitted in Bhawanipatna Medical. She succumbed to her injuries on Friday and then Ramesh buried her and went absconding. Locals said that Ramesh was mentally unsound.
On intimation, cops reached the spot and exhumed her body. While post-mortem has already been performed, cops are further investigating into the matter.
