CUTTACK: Mystery shrouds the death of a 47-year-old man who was found lying in a pool of blood on Cuttack-Paradip road near Bidyadharpur Sai temple under Chauliaganj police limits after his brother alleged that he was murdered on Saturday. 


The victim identified as Sheikh Afjal Hussein, a private electrician of Dewan Bazaar under Lalbag police limits, was found unconscious on the road on Friday. Being informed, Chauliaganj police rushed him to SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack where he was received dead. From the preliminary investigation, police suspected it as an accident case while Sheikh Aftar Hussein, brother of Afjal, has alleged that his brother was murdered and the body was thrown at the roadside. 


According to Aftar, two persons came to his house on Friday morning and called Afjal for electrification work of a mobile showroom at Jagatsinghpur. While leaving with them, Afjal told his family members that he would return by 4 pm.

However, they got information that he was lying in a pool of blood on the roadside in the afternoon. The wound on his head created suspicion over cause of his death, Aftar alleged. Basing on the allegation, police have sent the body for post-mortem and the report is awaited for further investigation, said Chauliaganj IIC Ajay Kumar Das.
