Crime Patrol: Odisha contractor chops off hands of two labourers (Episode 379, 380 on 7th, 8th June 2014)



The Inside Story

Kalahandi, Odisha

Manhunt Launched After Labourers' Hands Chopped Off by Contractor

The Kalahandi district police have initiated a manhunt to apprehend a labour contractor and his associate who allegedly severed the hands of two labourers. The authorities have identified the accused individuals and are actively searching for the escaped labourers.

The incident came to light when the two injured labourers, Jialu Nial and Dhangada Majhi, arrived in critical condition at the government hospital in Bhawanipatana, the district headquarters town of Kalahandi. The victims had been hired by the accused from different villages in Kalahandi to work in a brick kiln in Andhra Pradesh, but they were forcibly taken to Raipur, Chhattisgarh instead.

Refusing to work in Raipur, 10 out of the 12 labourers managed to escape. In retaliation, the contractor and his accomplice attempted to bring the remaining two labourers back to Kalahandi in order to recover the advance payment they had made. However, during the journey, the contractor and his accomplice, under the influence of alcohol, mutilated the right hands of the two labourers in a jungle near Belpada.
