The SP further said, "The victim was a teacher by profession but he was also active in selling insurance policies. Behera stated that he took one policy of PNB Met life from the deceased and paid Rs 24,000 as instalment, but he was not given any receipt. So he was annoyed with the deceased."

On 7 October, he again went there again and inspected the area. And on 8 October, he attacked the family and killed them," the SP said.
