A body was found floating in an abandoned well at a place bordering Odisha and Jharkhand, near Jamnalia vil-lage under Raruan block in Ma,yurbhanj district January 15.
However, as the well is lo-cated in a disputed area close to the borders of Odisha and Jharkhand, the police of the two states were initially re-luctant to take up the case.
Finally it was decided that the area comes under Jashipur police limits.
Police then fished out the body and started an investigation. Police after investigation found out that the deceased was a resident of Jharkhand.-They then zeroed in on Bhola and Sarat, residents of a vil-lage on the Jharkhand side.
After their arrest, the two con-fessed that they had killed Jaypal. After their arrest, they were produced in a local court and remanded to judicial cus-tody. Police said the accused duo had killed their uncle by stran-gulating over a past enmity.
After killing him, they car-ried the body on a bicycle for nearly six kilometres to the Odisha. Then they had thrown the body into an abandoned_ well to avoid police investi-gation. However, all their ef-forts to nullify their criminal act have gone to waste.
