Kandhamal,November 14: Two more persons arrested for murder of advocate Hemant Sahu who was axed to death on Tuesday morning.
The accused have been identified as Banamali Sahu and Kiranarba Sahu.
Earlier yesterday, police had arrested four persons in connection with the case.
Raising voice against the murder and police inaction, lawyers across Odisha observed a 'protest day' yesterday and judicial activities across the State remained paralysed.
The incident took place when Sahu, who was a former block president of BJP, was on a morning walk. Unidentified miscreants attacked him from behind and fled the spot. Profusely bleeding the lawyer died on the spot.
Police suspect previous rivalry over a land dispute to be the motive behind the murder. The deceased lawyer was a prosecution witness in the 2004 murder of his uncle.
