Angul: The body of a 15-year-old boy was found hanging from a tree in a cashew nut orchard in Kushakila village under Jarpada police limits here on Tuesday.

The deceased has been identified as Shyam Sundar Sahoo. He was a student of Kushakila High School. Sahoo scored total 108 marks in the 10th Board, and was reportedly depressed after publication of the results today morning.
