Three Of Family Including Couple Found Dead Inside House In Ganjam

Ganjam: A man was found hanging from the ceiling while his wife and daughter were spotted lying dead in a pool of blood inside a house in Palia area of Chhatrapur in Ganjan district today morning.

The deceased man named Brundaban Behera was a businessman while his wife and daughter have been identified as Urmila and Sunita respectively. Sunita was studying Plus III and the couple is survived by another two kids- a daughter and son, who had gone to Digapanhandi to their relative’s house.

As per reports, locals spotted the blood-soaked bodies of Urmila and Sunita lying on the floor in the drawing room of the house and informed the police. Police officials along with Ganjam SP Brijesh Kumar Rai rushed to the spot and later found Brundaban’s body hanging inside a room of the house.

“Police got information about the bodies of mother and daughter lying on the floor and rushed to the spot. Upon investigation, we found another person hanging from the ceiling and launched an investigation,” said the SP.

A scientific team has also been engaged for further investigation.

Though the exact reason behind the death of the trio is yet to be ascertained, preliminary investigation by the police indicated that Behera might have first killed his wife and daughter over some family issue before committing suicide by hanging himself.

“Scientific team is investigating the crime scene and we are questioning the neighbours. The bodies will be sent for post-mortem which will establish the exact cause of the death of the trio,” said Additional SP Thakur Prasad Patra.
