'Body had multiple fatal injuries, why no CCTV in room'
Bidhuri was rushed to a nearby hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead.
His family alleged that it's all planned, otherwise why were there no CCTV cameras in the room where he was thrashed?
Moreover, his body had multiple fatal injuries.
"His hair and eyebrows had been shaved off. His body's lower part had multiple abrasions, all of which oozed blood," said his uncle.

Chinmoy Biswal, DCP (Southeast), said a case has been registered under IPC Section 302 and investigation is on.
Preliminary probe revealed Arora himself was an inmate a month ago, but later took up the job of a caretaker.
