Santosh Naik, son of Basant Naik is a resident of village Jemadeipur under Kanpur police station in Cuttack district. Basant Naik has two sons; one of them works in a Company in Angul. 15 dalit families reside in Jemadeipur dalit sahi (Pana sahi).
Basant Naik (father of Santosh) catches fish from the agricultural fields by his net. 15 days before this incident, there was conflict due to catching of fish with Lulu Sahu, son of Kumar Sahu of neighbouring village. Then Lulu had gone to the house of Santosh, abused with obscene language and threatened to assault by sword. The cause of the altercation was the question by Lulu, why he was fishing in that field; wheras the field belonged to Santosh Naik.
On 18.9.2021 in the evening at about 7 pm, Jhunu Naik, wife of Santosh had gone to fetch some grocery items from nearby shop. Lulu reached there and abused her with slangs aspersing her caste. She asked, why he was saying so? But he misbehaved further. Jhunu rushed back and told Santosh that Lulu is abusing her. Lulu had followed Jhunu to Santosh’s house. Finding him, Santosh asked him why he did so. Lulu immediately brought out a sword and assaulted Santosh with brute force. Santosh was severely injured with multiple injuries. He was rescued by passerby and taken to hospital.
