40-year-old youth by removing a Bamboo Pole from his body.
The patient, Tapan Parida, resident of Talajanga under Chandanpur block in Puri district was rushed to the hospital around midnight on October 28. A 5-foot-long bamboo pole went through his chest and emerged from the back side above his neck.
