Last rites of Seshadri Rao performed in Puri

Puri/Jeypore: Odia student K Seshadri Rao who was killed at Boston University in the USA on April 19 was today cremated at Swargadwar in Puri. Five days after the murder, body of Seshadri arrived at Biju Patnaik Airport, Bhubaneswar from USA on Tuesday evening.

However, Sandip, brother of the deceased, expressed his unhappiness over the tardy progress in the investigation.  “An attempt was made to loot valuables from Seshadri, a week before the incident on the same spot where he was killed. The local police there did not make proper investigation in the matter despite complaint by my brother then,” rued Sandip. Sandip also complained that the Boston police was not providing any information to the family members of the deceased student.
