The death of an underage boy triggers tension in Balasore, locals block path

Balasore: Angry people blocked a road near Guluda Chhak on Saturday morning, protesting the death of an underage boy, who was caught in Dhaba on Friday.
The underage boy was found hanged under suspicious circumstances in Dhabi near IDCO Square, on Baliapal-Basta Road in Balasore district, on Friday morning. Thereafter, tensions prevailed in the area after angry locals overthrew Inspector General Police Station (IIC) from Baliapal Police Station.
Senior officials reached the site and reassured the locals. The body was confiscated and sent to a nearby hospital for death. However, hospital authorities denied this because the autopsy time was closed.
Subsequently, the family members of the deceased returned home leaving the body in the hospital.
An ambulance with the body of a minor later arrived in the village, claiming it was fatally shot. After the matter came up, locals detained two police officers and an ambulance to protest the death of a minor boy without informing the family of the deceased.
