Bolangir: In a shocking incident, Town police here recovered the chopped-off body parts of a youth packed in black polythene from a locked house at Salepali in this town, Wednesday. The deceased was identified as Rinku Meher, 27, a native of Liad village under Khariar police limits in Nuapada district. Police said it was a case of murder. The gruesome incident reminded one of the Shraddha Walkar murder cases in Delhi in May. Her boyfriend had murdered her and chopped her body into pieces. The matter came to the fore after locals found stench emanating from inside the house near Mathakhai Temple Square and informed the police after they found it locked from the outside.
In the presence of a magistrate and forensic team, police broke the lock of the house and recovered the chopped body parts of Rinku. Two axes, a crowbar, and a hammer were recovered from the spot. Preliminary inquiries suggested that the miscreants after brutally murdering Rinku had chopped off his body parts and packed them in polythene in a bid to destroy evidence. Rinku who was working as a driver was staying in the house here for the last eight years with his father Markand, mother, and younger brother after shifting from his native village. Police did not rule out the involvement of Rinku’s family in his death as he had a tiff with his father a few days back. Police said that they were probing all angles and said those involved will be arrested soon.
