A man, who has been working as a professor at a private university, allegedly killed his father by stabbing him with a knife in Bhubaneswar on Wednesday.

The deceased has been identified as Sunil Choudhury, a retired NALCO official. The accused has been identified as Anirudha Choudhury.

However, the motive behind the murder is yet to be ascertained. The accused has been detained by police. An investigation into the incident has been launched.

As per reports, the accused has been working as a professor at a law university. He was staying with his father at Rangamatia apartment under Mancheswar police station in the Capital City. 

Reportedly, the accused allegedly stabbed the retired NALCO official with a knife to death following an altercation with his father. However, the cause of the altercation is yet to be revealed.

Following the development, Mancheswar police reached the spot with a scientific team and started an investigation into the incident. The body has been sent for post-mortem.

Residents in the area are in utter dismay over the incident and express their disbelief that how can an educated professional kill his elderly father in such a cruel manner.

“Anirudha and his wife had a squabble a couple of days back and she had gone to her home. Sunil had been staying with his father for the last two days. I don’t know anything about what prompted Anirudha to kill his father,” said a friend of the deceased who brought the deceased to the hospital in a serious condition.

“We just reached the spot and started the investigation. The accused has been detained and his questioning is currently underway. More information about the incident could be divulged after the investigation,” said Bhubaneswar ACP Goutam Kisan.

“I just came to know about the incident at around 6 am today. I can’t say much about the incident,” said a local resident.
