Bhawanipatna: Taking a round turn, the Kalahandi triple death case has become a triple murder case. It has come to fore that the accused, for the sake of his extra-marital affair, killed his wife and his two minor sons.
The decapitated body of one Bimala Majhi was discovered on railway tracks and bodies of two minor sons with throats slashed were found at their home in Singhajharana village under Bhawanipatna Sadar Police limits. It was initially suspected that Bimala might have taken the drastic step because of her husband, Linga Majhi’s, infidelity. Reportedly, Linga had another woman and had been living with her at Bhawanipatna.
Working adeptly on the case, the Bhawanipatna Sadar Police tracked Linga and extracted a confession out of him. He accepted that he had actually killed Bimala and his two sons- Rabindra Majhi (4) and Dushmanta Majhi (6).
The accused said that on Sunday, he had come to Bimala and asked her to reconcile with him. However, Bimala refused which later became a heated argument. Enraged, Linga strangulated his wife first and then slashed his sons’ necks. Then he dumped Bimala’s body on nearby railway tracks to make it look like a suicide.
Linga Majhi has been taken into custody and he will be forwarded to court soon, informed Kalahandi SP Batula Gangadhar.
