Mystery shrouds death of father-son duo in Sundergarh
Sundergarh: A 64-year-old man and his son were found dead under mysterious circumstances in the agricultural fields at Tentulijharana adjacent to an abandoned brick kiln at Bankibahal under Hemgiri police limits in Sundergarh on Friday.
The deceased duo, identified as Mohan Bhaisali (64) and his son Anadi Bhaisali (38), hail from Podapuni village in Kendrapara district, police said.
According to sources, the father-son duo had gone to Bankibahal for work yesterday. However, some locals spotted the bodies near the brick kiln at around 8 am today and informed the same to the police.
As per preliminary investigation, it is suspected that the duo had committed suicide but the actual cause behind the death is yet to be ascertained. Although, the distance between Bankibahal to Podapuni is very far, police suspects it to be a murder.
Whether the duo has committed suicide or murdered will come to the fore after the autopsy report arrives, said a police official, adding that a probe has been initiated into the incident.
