**Jajpur**: Giri Mandal is a living, breathing example of “A dog’s tail is crooked forever”. In a sensational display of “Old Habits die hard”, murder convict Mandal who was released from jail two years back has committed the same heinous crime again.
A youth named Sanatan Samal of Jaraka was allegedly beaten up by Mandal last night after an argument over a trivial issue. Samal sustained critical injuries in the physical assault and died on his way to Dharmasala hospital for treatment.
Samal’s family members staged a road blockade today at the Sankharidiha Chhak near Jaraka on the National Highway-16 demanding justice.
Cops rushed to the spot to pacify them and have detained the accused for interrogation into the matter.
According to sources, Mandal was released from the jail two years back after serving a sentence on charges of murdering his wife.
