Bhubaneswar: Locals are staging a protest demanding compensation for the two persons killed in an accident at the Amath Forest check-gate in Kalahandi district on Thursday.
The irate locals have placed the dead bodies on the road stranding the vehicular movement over Balangir-Kalahandi route.
According to sources, earlier in the day a high speed coal laden truck had rammed into the ticket collection counter at the check gate killing one staff Mahendra Majhi and injuring other Benudhar Rana.
Rana had been admitted to the Kesinga Government hospital but later succumbed to his injuries. The two were contractual employees at the check gate.
