Man Lynched By Wife, Son Over Money

The incident happened in Kokipada village under Cuttack Sadar police station late last night.

Police said that Fakir Mohanty (62), a former government employee, had been thrown out of his house in the village by his wife and their 26-year-old son and he was staying in a slum in Bhubaneswar.

On Saturday, when Mohanty had come to the village to collect his old-age pension, his son and wife picked up a quarrel with him demanding money.
