An elderly couple was axed to death in Odisha's Mayurbhanj district by a tribal on suspicions that they were practising black magic.

Officer-in-charge of Sarat police station Nabakumar Das said on Saturday the two were killed on Thursday night at Dhanusahi village and before anyone came to know of it, the man went to the police station and gave himself up the next morning.
