According to sources, 58-year-old Sudarsan Bhoi used to rear poultry birds in his home for commercial purposes and left them in the fields to feed.  On Wednesday, a wild cat ate a chicken that irked Bhoi and he wanted to take his wrath out on his wife and son.

Angry with their son, Bhoi stabbed his son Dilip in the neck injuring him grievously. When he was being shifted to District Headquarters Hospital, Jagatsinghpur for treatment, he succumbed on the way.

However, instead of informing the police, Bhoi returned with his son’s body and wanted to cremate him when the victim’s elder brother Deepak (31) lodged an FIR, police said. Jagatsinghpur police rushed to the spot and seized the body from the village on Wednesday night and sent it for postmortem.IIC of Jagatsinghpur police station Gokularanjan Das said, “Bhoi has been arrested and forwarded to the court. We have seized four blood-stained bamboo pieces and an iron rod used in the crime. The investigation is on.”
