**Berhampur: ** Tension ran high in Gangapur under Chhatrapur tehsil in Ganjam district after a local BJD worker was killed in broad daylight by miscreants at a market place. The deceased, identified as Sanya Bisoyi (35), is a local BJD worker and was on his way back home from the market when the incident took place.
Speaking to mediapersons, Sanya’s brother Sankar Bisoyi said, “It was our eldest brother Rabi Bisoyi’s marriage today. Sanya’s marriage was also fixed on May 6. We had all gone to the market for marriage shopping and were returning when 4 persons appeared out-of-the-blue and fired two rounds of bullets at Sanya. They also hurled a bomb at him besides attacking him with swords. After committing the crime, they fled the scene. We took Sanya to the hospital but he was declared dead by the doctors.”
Sankar Bisoyi also revealed that three of the attackers are from Gangapur while the fourth one is an outsider. He informed that Sanya was being threatened repeatedly over the phone and this murder might be a reason of personal enmity.
Gangapur MLA Purna Chandra Swain also met the deceased BJD worker’s family members. He informed that Sanya’s phone call record would be checked to get a deeper insight into the matter.
Ruling out possibility of political rivalry being the reason behind the murder, Swain remarked that truth would come to light once the probe is completed. Speculating anything now would be absolutely preposterous.
