Gold particles in water coming out from a deep bore well at a village in Bolangir district have triggered curiosity. 

According to a source, the people of Nandupala village under Khaprakhol block had a surprise of their lifetime when they on Friday found that a bore well near Harishankar was dispensing water mixed with gold particles. 

Soon the news spread. Hundreds of curious people from the neighbouring villages made a beeline to see for themselves. 

In no time, the local administration got the news and swung into action. The block development officer (BDO) and the tehsildar of Khaprakhol and police officials reached the village. 

After collecting samples, they came back. While interacting with journalists, the tehsildar said the samples have been sent to laboratories for the test.
