Bhadrak: A youth named Bijay Behera was brutally murdered by miscreants today evening. The deceased was a native of Kaupur village. He was attacked by a group with batons and grievously injured. Behera succumbed at a local hospital.

According to sources, Behera had stocked a pile of sand for constructing a house. Some of his neighbours resisted this and asked him to remove the pile of sand. This matter led to an altercation which turned violent.

Police have sent the body for autopsy and registered a case. A manhunt has been launched to nab the culprits.
