MOHULPADA (SUNDARGARH): Three members of a family killed their acquaintance following a dispute over `10 at Budhakhaman village under Mohulpada police limits in Bonai sub-division of Sundargarh district.
According to reports, the prime accused Munduri Dehuri (44) is at large, while two other accused - his wife Panjari and minor son - have been detained by the police on Saturday.
The deceased Raj Giri (45) and his wife Baigani of Budhakhaman village met the accused trio at Rengala weekly market on Friday evening.

In a fit of rage, the accused trio killed Giri with a wooden plank. The body has been sent for autopsy on Saturday after registration of a murder case.
