**Gajapati**: A 35-year-old man was hacked to death by unidentified attackers in Sitapur area of the district today morning.
The deceased has been identified as C Sanjeeb Rao of Bhupati Laxmipur.
The harrowing incident occurred when Sanjeeb was on his way to the court in connection with his divorce case. His bike was stopped midway by some assailants, who first hurled chilli powder on him and then hacked him to death with sharp weapons.
The deceased’s grieving father C Meena Rao said, “He was on his way to the court, when he was hacked to death. I do not suspect anyone as he had no enmity with any person and used to mind his own business.”
Inspector-in-Charge (IIC) of Kashinagar Police Station, Anand Patra, said, “We reached the spot after getting information. We have sent Sanjeeb’s body for post mortem and are currently investigating the matter to identify the assailants.”
