A day after 19-year old Rajesh Jena was killed in cold blood, Nayapalli Police are hot on the trails of a local hoodlum and his two teenage sons for the chilling murder.

Rajesh’s brother-in-law lodged an FIR with the police naming Krushna Chandra Nayak and his sons Dhananjay and Mrityunjay. The three are absconding.

Police have also found an eyewitness to the murder. Santosh, who was with Rajesh and saw his friend being attacked brutally, has provided vital clues about the incident.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that it was a trivial issue over which the murder took place. The siblings, Dhananjay and Mrityunjay, police sources said, were apparently provoked by their father to attack Rajesh. Krushna is a local muscle man and runs a security agency. His teenage sons are also taking after the father.

Last evening, the siblings duo were returning home when Rajesh, who had acquaintance with them, called out the elder brother Dhananjay by his name upon seeing them near his house. This apparently irked Dhananjay who had an altercation with Rajesh. The brothers went home enraged and after a reported pep talk from the father, returned to Police Colony where they had encountered Rajesh to settle scores with him.

While Rajesh was not there, Santosh, who was present when the altercation took place, tried to pacify the duo but to no avail. Seeing the brothers in a fit of rage, he tried to call Rajesh to warn him but unfortunately, he turned up and faced the attack.

In fact, the brothers had come on the bike of a third youth while it was the father who came in his Bolero to pick up the sons from the crime scene. Nayapalli Police have formed several squads to search for the culprits.
