Police Form Special Team As Three Murders in 24 hours Rock Cuttack
Cuttack: A special police team has been formed to identify and trace the killers in the wake of three murders in the city in a span of 24 hours, an officer said.
The victims, all men, were aged over 40 years and found on the roadside, he said with the throats of all the three bodies slit and their heads found to be smashed with a heavy object.
The mutilated bodies and untraced killers have sparked rumours of the involvement of a suspected ‘stoneman’ behind the murders.
The police has stepped up night patrolling and the homeless are being told to sleep at shelter homes, city DCP Akhileshwar Singh said.
The Government Railway Police (GRP) has been alerted to remain vigilant as many sleep in the open in station areas.
Nine persons were killed by a suspected ‘stoneman’ in Berhampur in 1998.
In all the incidents, including the recent one, the victims and their killers were unidentified.
