Shocking! Man kills mother over family feud

Bhubaneswar: In a shocking and spine-chilling incident, a youth killed his mother by smashing her head with a stone pestle owing to a family discord at Bharatpur under Khandagiri police limits in the city on Sunday morning.

The accused son, identified as Bijay Maharana alias Tiki, was arrested and is being interrogated by police. Bijay forced her mother Sudasna Maharana (50) to solemnise his marriage with a particular girl to which she had been denying.
