Odisha: In a shocking incident, a 32-year-old man was apprehended by Odisha Police for a violent altercation that involved the biting off of his father's nose and assaulting two others. Identified as Bibhuti Samal, also known as Mantu, he resides in Routarapur village within Jajpur district, as confirmed by the police.
The disturbing incident unfolded when Bibhuti returned home in an intoxicated state late on Monday. His arrival sparked a series of verbal abuses aimed at his neighbours. Matters escalated when his father, Shatrughan, attempted to intervene. Instead of defusing the situation, Bibhuti turned physically aggressive, assaulting his father and gruesomely biting off a portion of his nose, detailed the police report. After Shatrughan cried for help, two neighbours rushed to intervene. Unfortunately, Bibhuti didn't relent and launched attacks on them as well, exacerbating the chaotic situation.
Local residents, upon hearing the distressing commotion, promptly alerted the Jajpur Road police, leading to Bibhuti's swift arrest at the scene. All injured people, including father Shatrughan, were promptly taken to the Jajpur Road Community Health Centre (CHC) for medical attention. Following a formal complaint filed by Shatrughan, the police registered a case against his son Bibhuti under pertinent sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Subsequently, Bibhuti was produced before a local court on Tuesday, where his bail plea was rejected. He was remanded to judicial custody, as confirmed by the statement from Upendra Kumar Pradhan, the Inspector-in-Charge (IIC) of the Jajpur Road police station.
