A day after police recovered the bodies of a woman and her two minor daughters from their house at Fatak Pada in Brajrajnagar Town of Jharsuguda district, husband of the deceased woman was found dead here on Thursday.
As per reports, the deceased woman identified as Soni Poddar (28) along with her two minor daughters was found dead inside her house on Wednesday. The bodies of the trio were spotted by a neighbour through a window of the house.
The deceased woman's husband identified as Narayan Poddar reportedly went missing after the incident.
After learning about the triple death, Police rushed to the spot and seized the bodies. A scientific team conducted a detailed investigation before sending the bodies for post-mortem.
Soni's family raised suspicion on Narayan and held him responsible for the incident as he was missing.
However, Narayan's body was recovered from a well on Thursday.
Police has intensified the probe to ascertain the exact cause of the death of Narayan and his family members.
"We received information this morning that his (Narayan) body was floating in a well. Exact reason behind his death can be ascertained after post mortem and scientific investigation. We hope that we can unearth the mystery behind the deaths in the family," said Bikash Dash, Superintendent Of Police, Jharsuguda.
Narayan's brother has been detained in connection with the series of deaths and police have begun interrogation to hit upon any probable leads to the case.
As reported earlier, Soni’s father had informed the police that the couple was not in good terms with each other over some family dispute.
Based on the allegations, the police have started questioning their relatives and neighbours to collect more information about the angle.
Narayan, a daily wage labourer, was a native of Chhattisgarh and living in a rented house at Fatak Pada with his family.
