Nayagarh quadruple murder: CB arrests four dacoits

Nayagarh: The Crime Branch (CB) of Odisha Police on Friday arrested four persons involved in the murder of four members of a family at Chandpur in Nayagarh district two years ago.

The four arrested were hardcore dacoits of Ganjam and Jajpur districts. Notably, one Kasinath Patra, his daughter-in-law and two grand children of Shastri Nagar at Chandpur in the district had been killed by five miscreants on September 6, 2014. The quadruple murder incident had created outrage among the public.

It is suspected that the miscreants had attempted to commit robbery at Kashinath’s house and later killed four. While five persons were involved in the murder, one of them has died, CB sources said.

With the help of Nayagarh police, the CB arrested the four, who are likely to be produced before the Ranpur Court today, the sources said.
