Berhampur (Orissa): The in-charge of a police station in Orissa's Ganjam district was shot dead by unidentified assailants, ahead of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik's scheduled visit to the area, police said on Saturday.

The bullet-riddled body of Manoranjan Mishra (35), Inspector in-charge (IIC) of Sheragada police station, was found from Takarada area this morning, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Southern Range) RK Sharma said.

Mishra was shot dead apparently when he was returning to his house at Hinjili from Sheragada on a motor-cycle last night, Sharma said, adding that the two-wheeler was also found near the body.

Additional police force has been sent to the spot and police in nearby areas have been alerted, Sharma said.

The killing came on the eve of Chief Minister's visit to the area which falls under his Assembly constituency of Hinjili, sources said.
