**Koraput: ** In a bizarre incident, a mother Sadhumati filed a case against her daughter-in-law in Narayanpatna police station, Koraput alleging that she had murdered her son a fortnight back.
Notably, 22-year old Sunil Hiyal hailing from Harijan Sahi, Narayanpatna block of Koraput district was married and had a daughter. But, he fell in love and married for the second time to Lankaswari Bagha (Puja) of Laxmipur block. Both his wives stayed together under one roof.
On the occasion of Ganesh Puja, when his mother and first wife were away to another village, Sunil died at night and his second wife informed the villagers and relatives.
The mother was, however, having doubts and after 16 days of her son’s death filed a case against her second daughter in law for his son’s murder. The police sprung into action seeing the complexity of the case and unearthed the mortal remains of the deceased by sending a scientific team to the spot.
The remains had been sent to MKCG Hospital, Berhampur for post-mortem and the police authorities have handed the mortal remains to his family members.
“We are awaiting the post mortem report. Moreover, a viscera teat will also be conducted in the Forensic Science Laboratory, Berhampur. We are investigating the matter. Only after we get the reports, we can proceed in the case. Meanwhile, the second wife is absconding,” informed Umesh Kumar Sahoo, IIC, Narayanpatna police station.
