According to police, Sadhucharan and Janka had a confrontation with Jura over a chicken feast. They left the place after a verbal duel with him. However, Jura nurtured a grudge against them. On that night, he hacked the duo to death. To avoid police action, he then dumped the bodies in a village rivulet. On Sunday morning, he surrendered at K Balang Police Station following which the bodies were recovered. 

A detailed probe is underway, the police said.
