**Rourkela**: Perhaps the ‘anti-Romeo’ drive launched by the UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had its domino effect following which a youth beat another youth to death on Friday for speaking badly about the former’s girlfriend here on Friday.
Notably, both the deceased and the accused are friends.
The deceased has been identified as Papun Oram (24).
According to reports, the brutal incident happened inside a jungle near Carmel School under Raghunathpalli police station on Thursday night.
The police have detained all the three accused Ajay Lohar (prime accused), Rohan Kumbhar and Sankar Tudu at Jalda police outpost.
Sources said Ajay was angry as Papun continuously kept talking bad things about his girlfriend and despite requests he didn’t stop it.
Upset over the matter, Ajay had warned Papun several times but the latter didn’t refrain from it.
In order to take revenge, Ajay along with his two friends invited Papun to a jungle and when he reached there, they pounced on him beating black and blue leading to his death.
Meanwhile, the police is questioning the trio and the matter is under investigation.
