Bhubaneswar:20/12/20: The Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Odisha Crime Branch has made a major breakthrough by arresting one person for his alleged involvement in the sensational abduction and subsequent murder of five-year-old Nayagarh girl ‘Pari’.
Through a press release, the SIT confirmed that the arrestee is a resident of Jadupur in Nayagarh district, which is the native village of the minor girl who was allegedly kidnapped and murdered in July this year.
The accused, whose name is yet to be revealed, will be produced before a POCSO court in Nayagarh on Monday, the release stated.
The investigating team has booked the accused under sections 376-A, 376AB, 364, 302,201 of IPC read with section 6 of POCSO Act.
It is worth mentioning that the SIT had whisked away a man named Saroj Sethy of the same village and his relatives two days before he accused the SIT chief Arun Bothra of offering him of Rs 5 lakh to take the blame for murdering the minor girl. Sethy claimed that he is being falsely implicated in the case even without his involvement in the incident.
