BHUBANESWAR: A youth of PWD Basti under Laxmisagar police limits was stabbed to death on Monday night. The incident coming after three days of the murder of a labourer at Station Square has raised questions on law and order situation in the Capital city.

Police said five persons of Reddy Basti attacked Kartik Sahu (21) with a knife and an iron pipe near his house over a past enmity. Kartik’s family members tried to rescue him but to no avail. They also sustained injuries in the brawl.

The five accused Mina Reddy, S Chalpati Reddy, Dhanaraj Reddy, Raju Reddy and S Sahadeb Reddy were arrested and a case registered against them. Police also seized the knife along with the iron pipe used in the crime.
