Odisha: Mentally-Ill Man Hacks Brother To Death, Commits Suicide

**Kandhamal:** Tension gripped the district’s Udaygiri village after bodies of two related brothers were recovered today morning. One of them who was mentally-ill allegedly killed the other last night and then committed suicide in Lankagarh panchayat under Belaghar police limits.

The two deceased persons have been identified as Tikiri Beheradalei and Gobardhan Beheradalei.

At around 8 pm on Wednesday night, Tikiri hacked his related brother Gobardhan with an axe and dumped his body in the forest nearby. Following that, Tikiri proceeded back to his residence and committed suicide by hanging himself.

Early today morning, the locals spotted Gobardhan’s body in the wild and immediately informed the local police about the matter.

The police reached the spot immediately and recovered Gobardhan’s body. They also tracked down Tikiri’s body and sent both for post-mortem.

While sources have cited past family enmity between the two, it has been discovered that Tikiri was mentally-ill and had also undergone treatment for the same six months back.

The cops are further investigating into the matter.
