**Rourkela:** The steel city here woke up to the shocking news of coldblooded murder of a married tribal woman while the infant daughter has been spared and no robbery in the house spotted by the local police here.
Though the motive behind the murder is yet to be known, needle of suspicion points at the husband going by the circumstantial evidence and it is suspected to be the fallout of extramarital affairs.
While the deceased has been identified as Janaki Oram, her husband has been identified as Kamal Oram. Kamal is the Deputy Manager of Sector 17-based SBI Retail Assets Central Processing Cell.
The incident has taken place inside Kamal’s official quarters of SBI Colony near Bagbudi Basti (slum) in Chhend Colony here on Wednesday evening.
Kamal had been to the quarters for lunch-break from the office between 2-3 pm. When he was back to home in the evening, he found his wife lying dead in a pool of blood and her throat slit.
Circumstantial evidence appears, the perpetrator of the crime has neither barged into the house with a motive of robbery as nothing from the house has been looted nor the 25-day-old infant daughter has been meted out any injuries.
Their 10-year-old daughter Rosina Oram reads in Babudihi staying in the hostel.
Chhend police with scientific team rushed to the spot late night after being tipped off and initiated investigation.
After the arrival of Janaki’s family members from Bargarh and following the inquest and autopsy reports of the body, it could only lead to some clues.
While Janaki is from Bargarh district, Kamal hails from Subdega in Sundargarh district. They had got married in 2004.
Later on Thursday, the in-laws of Kamal reached Rourkela.
Kamal’s father-in-law Jagabandhu Das said, “Who so ever is the culprit should be punished. Both were living well”.
However, Jagabandhu’s wife, beside him was heard by media persons prompting her husband to say sometimes their son-in-law used to ask them to take away their daughter.
