Angul/Deogarh: In a set of two separate bizarre incidents, three persons including a couple were killed by their sons in separate incidents in the State last night.
In Angul, a man and wife were beaten to death by his son Dukhishyam Baghar in Barapadar village under Kishorenagar police limits in Angul district. Police have detained Baghar for interrogation.
Sources said, while Dukhishyam was attacking his wife, his parents tried to stop him. This infuriated him and he hit both his parents with a hammer.
In another incident, a man was allegedly shot dead by his son, who was in inebriated condition, at Shrungipala village under Kundheigola police limits in Deogarh district.
Family dispute might have been the reason behind the ghastly attack, sources said.
