Balangir: One person was killed in a violent attack by a group of villagers over past enmity in the district on Saturday.
According to sources, the shop of Dhanamata Raut of Jarasingha village under Deogaon police limits was totally burnt down a few days back. Suspecting involvement of Karna Suna and Sripati Bhesara of neighbouring Harijanapada village, Dhanamata allegedly attacked them.
Though Karna and Sripati were rushed to Bhima Bhoi Medical College & Hospital in the town, the latter succumbed to injuries. Enrage over his death, a group of villagers from Harijanapada attacked Dhanamanta and his family members with sharp weapons on Saturday.
