Generally, tribal are cool, simple and religious people. Sometimes, due to blind beliefs and extreme rage they cross all the limits. Commonly the Lodha clan of tribal shows these attributes. This incident is a true story. Here owing to the advent of fanatical rage clouded with blind believers, murder within blood relatives occurred. Uncle was murdered cold blooded by some of his brother and also aunty was critically injured in this incident. The accused has no sign of shame after this incident. He was happy to perform this action.

20th April 2013. It is three pm afternoons. Morada police station of Mayurbhanja district got the news that, in Lodha Sahi (Lodha district) of Morada police station one person murdered. Husband died on the spot and his wife is crying with pain with severe injuries. Officer in charge of Morada police station informed SPDO of Betanati subdivision of Mayurbhanja district. He went ahead with sub inspectors and two writers (constables) to the murdered spot in the early morning. He reached there within seven to eight minutes. On the concrete road of Lodha Sahi, both husband and wife lying there. Husband was hit three times on his neck by manual wood cutter and he perished on the spot.  Wife had two hits one his neck by manual wood cutter and she was still alive crying heavily with pain.

The Blood river emanating from both husband and wife is running for ten meters in that concrete road. The officer in charge of Morada police station sent the lady to the nearest government hospital for treatment. The officer in charge wasted no time to send the lady to the hospital and then began primary investigation of this murder. Both husband and wife belonged to Loda Sahi. The dead Nayak was 55 years old. They had two daughters, and younger daughter who was 14 years of childhood was eye witness of this cold blooded murder. According to her, after finishing work, her parents were returning to the village. On that time, her cousin brother was drying some nuts on the roads. In seeing this, her father asked her cousin, was this place of your father? Why were you occupying the public road?  Angry words exchanged between them. After few minutes, her mother joined the raged conversion among them. This happens for a long time. After some time, her cousin went into his home and brings the manual wood cutter and put three strikes on the neck of his father immediately within a few seconds. Her mother tried to put bread into his evil work. She was likewise attacked by him severely and had to bear two strikes of wood cutter on his neck.

Her cousin was shouting angrily and telling loudly anyone who would be here should be stroked with his manual wood cutter. She said with fear for life no one reached near him to stop his work of evil. After stroking harshly with his wood cutter to both of his parents, her cousin thought that, both were frozen and then he ran into the nearby jungle with his manual woodcutter. Her mother would have been extinct, if the officer in charge would not have to take prompt action to send her to the nearest hospital for urgent treatment. Then, the body of besieged was sent to district head quarter Hospital of Mayrubhanja for autopsy. First and foremost part of this investigation was to catch the murderer and for this officer in charge and his team, went to the murderer’s home and also searched few homes, where they thought the murder would be hiding there. They did not find him anywhere in these homes and locality. They decided to search him in the nearest jungle. In the mean time, local ward member saw the officer in charge on the concrete road. He told him a different story to the officer in charge of the investigation, as he told him that, the murdered was being pursued by his father to kill him and he was on the run. In order to save his life, he was running towards the nearest jungle.

This made the scene more confusing for investigating officer, on the one hand the eye witness and her mother , who was critically attacked by cousin of eye witness , on the other hand , the word member told him that , the murder accuses was being hounded by his father to kill him. Was younger brother of murdered Nayak culprit and he wanted to kill his son so that the police would think that the murderer was killed and the case was now solved. Nevertheless, the primary posture for investigating officer was to search the murderer, the cousin of an eye witness and for this they decided to enter into the jungle. He constituted three teams of police and placed them at three entrance gates of jungle, a smart move on the part of investigating officer. He returned to police station to prepare mandatory papers for this case to take the advance route. He found that, previously there was a case against murdered Nayak, in the police station. For this, he had to face a jail term in the past. He was accused of dacoits in 2008. After proper discussions among the locals of Lodhi Sahi, he received the report that the murdered Nayak was a wicked person in that locality. He had very bad names among the community.

After investigating past history of murdered Nayak, the officer in charge went to the neighboring jungle, in the mean time, eight hours passed, no success for three teams stationed there. There were no signs of any trace of whereabouts of the murderer. After watching the three entrances into the jungle for a quite a bit of time, the officer in charge thought of a fresh idea. He tried to show that all the forces were removed from the jungle and the concerned vehicle came out there were now in the main roads. On the way, the forces moved down from the vehicles and all the vehicles went away through the roads empty. Individual drivers were inside the vehicles and all the forces stayed there confined. It was 11 pm on the night. Accused considered that police dispersed from the spot. They went to from the jungle and tried to go into their villages, and caught in the middle by police forces, which were there on the road, waiting for their arrival. The accused had no trace of worry on his face, after killing younger brother of his father. He was happy that he had done this. He perceived killing both and proud to do this grave and dangerous act of murder. The real reason for murder was not the drying of seeds on the roads, but many a times , his uncle was trying to molestation his wife and that built the rage within him and ultimately on that day from a mere argument  , it conglomerated into a vast issue and then he decided to finish his uncle .

The murdered man was a hooligan. His wife and two daughters were his family. Her wife was working as a day laborer, and the murdered man was primarily doing dacoits and attacking the persons travelled through roads to get the money from them. Owing to this, the elder brother of besieged ended all relationships with them. The murder had his wife and the girl child of two years. Nayak, the besieged person, always tried to trespass the wife of the murderer. There had been arguments among uncle and the murder many times. Sometimes, they confronted with boxing and neighbors and family mediated and solved the fight. On the incident day, the murderer was drying seeds on the government road. Earlier occasions drunken uncle used to rebuke him. On that day, he started rebuking him. He did this for more than 30 minutes. The murderer then got angry and severely with rage, he went into his house and brought the wood cutter and stroked his uncle’s neck three times, to finish him. After seeing this mortal combat, wife of Nayak rushed to prevent the murderer, but in vain, she was similarly attacked and severely injured and fell into that spot.

What was surprising that, the cold blooded murder occurred on the broad day light, no one in that vicinity came to help them, and also no one tried to take the injured people who were crying severely with pain, lying helplessly there? Police reached there after information received within seven to eight minutes and sent the injured to a government hospital. Wife of murdered Nayak was fighting for her life in hospital. The accused of murder was in judicial custody. He was not afraid of punishment. It seemed that he was glad to end the life of his uncle. There were no signs of repenting on his face.
