Police arrest 16 in Bolangir twin murder case
The double murder was a fall out of the long dispute between the dalits and the villagers of Chanutmal over the management rights of cashew plantation covering 4.5 acre of land under the soil conservation department. The matter was even pending in the local police station.
The simmering dispute took a serious turn on Saturday when the villagers attacked the dalits resulting in the death of two persons. Large number of houses were destroyed in the incident.
