In a shocking incident, a woman at Komanda in Nayagarh’s Odagaon block allegedly killed her husband and buried his body at her home after getting caught having an illicit affair.

The body of the deceased, identified as Prakash Nayak, was exhumed 20 days after he disappeared mysteriously.

As per sources, Nayak used to stay at her in-laws' house. His father had lodged a missing complaint at Odagaon police station after he got suspicious over a bulge on the floor in his in-laws' house.

The police came to the house and following a brief investigation exhumed Prakash’s body from the house in the presence of the Odagaon Magistrate.

Police force has been deployed in the village to control a possible law and order situation. A scientific team is also at the spot to probe the crime.

“I asked Prakash’s mother-in-law about his whereabouts two days back. But she told me he was out of town to arrange money. I could even smell something in their home and asked about it, but she did not tell me anything,” a villager said.

The police have detained Prakash’s wife, her boyfriend and her mother in this connection and questioning them. A crime scene recreation has also been conducted by the police with the help of Prakash’s wife.
