Nuapada (Odisha): A District Voluntary Force (DVF) personnel and his wife were shot dead by unidentified persons at Dharnimal village in Maoist-hit Nuapada district, police said on Sunday.

Dhaneswar Kata (35) and his wife Nirupama (28) were found dead at their house yesterday with bullet marks on their heads.

The incident was suspected to have been a fallout of a family dispute, police said, adding that the bullet wounds suggested that the assailant had fired from close range.

Dhaneswar had gone home after an assignment in Maoist-hit regions of the backward district about a week ago, they said.
