Baripada: Police on Monday recovered bodies of a young man and a minor girl from a well at Badadundu village under Bahalda police station in Orissa’s Mayurbhanj district today, police said.

The dead persons were identified as 12-year-old Seema Khatun and 20-year-old Md Sagir of Badadundu village. While the girl was stabbed to death, the boy might have committed suicide by drinking poison, said Sub-divisional Police Officer Manoranjan Mohanty.

Mohanty said indications were enough that the boy stabbed the girl before committing suicide. He did not rule out a love angle behind the incident.

Police said the bodies would be sent for post-mortem tomorrow. - PTI
