Jeypore: Residents of Bhejaput village under Sunabeda police limits of Koraput district blockaded the Semiliguda-Sunabeda road on Saturday morning after a sand-laden truck rammed into a house killing three sleeping members of a family late on Friday night.

Vehicular traffic between Semiliguda and Sunabeda was disrupted as a result. Senior police and district officials have rushed to the spot to pacify the residents, who were demanding compensation for family members of the dead.
