SAMBALPUR: Two persons were lynched by the residents of Kudenisha hamlet in Balaranga village in Batemura gram panchayat under Dhama police limits in the district on Sunday evening.

The deceased have been identified as Arun Meher alias Nrupalal (25) of Babukhinda village under Thelkuli police limits and Abinash Kumar Dash (22), resident of VSS Colony, Burla. Sources said that the two were invited by one Toofan Pradhan of the hamlet on the occasion of ‘Puspuni’ festival on Saturday. On their way to the village, they picked a fight with one Dhira Naik of the village and his uncle over a trifle.

Incensed, the village youths chased them to the house of Toofan where both Meher and Dash attacked the youths with ‘bhujali’, injuring a few of them.

This aggravated the situation further with the village youths lynching them.

Police have detained eight villagers and further investigation is on.
