Rajendra Prasad Mohapatra

Body of a labourer was found inside a foreign ship at the Paradip port in Odisha under mysterious circumstances on Tuesday.

The deceased was a resident of Badamba in Cuttack district.

Though the reason behind the death of the labourer is yet to be ascertained, it is suspected that the person might have died due to suffocation inside the hatch of the ship.

Colleagues of the deceased suspect that he might have died due to the covering of the hatch before his exit from it.

More details awaited.
