The police also sought the help of the doctor who was treating the actor while she was hospitalized to gather further evidence in the investigation.

Lingaraj Sahu and Kuntala Sahu, the father-in-law and mother-in-law of Nikita, are also under police scanner as the actor’s father had complained they used to torture his daughter both mentally and physically.

However, the police didn’t get any concrete evidence on their role so far.

The Chauliaganj police had registered a case under Section 302, 498 (A), 306 and 34 of IPC and further probe is on.
