Even as the controversy over the alleged starvation death of Annapurna Bagarti in Ward-15 of the Balangir Municipality has barely subsided, a report of an alleged starvation death of Lare Sahu (45) of Jalpankel village of Lathor gram panchayat in Khaprakhol block in the district on Saturday has come to light.
According to reports, Lare had migrated to Katapali village of Komna block of Nuapada district and was staying at that village for last few years with his mother and sister. He was managing the livelihood of his family by working in a dhaba.

However as he was afflicted with disease, he could not work properly and remained confined to his house and his family members managed to subsist by begging before he died on Saturday night.
Khaprakhol BDO Rajiv Behera told The Pioneer, “We had no information about the condition of Lare. Actually, he had migrated to Komna block of Nuapada district. Earlier, he was staying in a hut over a Gochar land of Jalpankel village in Lathor GP. His mother was getting widow pension from Nuapada district and they had gone to receive the pension a day before. We believe his death is due to a prolonged disease and neglect. Details of it will come out after the postmortem report is received.
Meanwhile, the Khaprakhol police are conducting an inquiry into the incident.
