Mahanga Double Murder Prime Accused’s Body Found In Cuttack

Cuttack: In a startling development in the sensational Mahanga double murder and Bikash Jena cases, the body of prime accused Prafulla Biswal was found lying on the national highway near Tangi in the district here today.

Even though his family members and police are yet to ascertain the exact cause behind his unnatural death, it is being suspected that Prafulla might have been killed after being run over by any unknown vehicle.

Sources said that he was moving on his bike late last night when he is suspected to be run over by a speeding truck on the national highway under the Tangi Police Station (PS) limits.

Prafulla, the husband of Nrutanga Sarpanch, was also accused of murdering one Bikash Jena and he had been evading arrest by the police in both the cases.
