Three of family killed in road mishap

Keonjhar: Tension ran high in Anandpur after three members of a family died in a road accident. The deceased have been identified as Dinabandhu Tripathy, his wife and minor son.

The trio, residents of Suapadara village under Ghasipura block in the district, was on the way to Ghatgaon Tarini temple on a bike for darsan when a trailer truck rammed them near Kolimati on NH-20.

“Dinabandhu was still breathing when we reached the spot. We called for ambulance service but it took over 45 minute to reach the spot,” alleged one local.

The road construction agency is solely responsible for the accident. Several accidents have occurred on this road due to the continuous delay in completing the road works. The district administration must take stringent action against the agency, said another local.

Till last report came in, police were yet to reach the spot.
