Bhubaneswar: Shocking revelations in the sensational Mamita Meher murder case continues unabated as a student of Sunshine English Medium School at Mahaling in Kalahandi district, where she was working as a teacher, has alleged that Minister Dibya Shankar Mishra used to visit the girls hostel of the educational institution.
The student further alleged that Govind Sahu, managing committee president of the school and prime accused in the murder case, ran sex racket in the school. As per the rules of the school, students were not allowed to keep mobile phones with them. However, Govind Sahu allowed those girl students engaged in the racket to keep and use mobile phones on the school premises, he said.
“Govind Sahu stayed at the girls hostel, most of the time. We always spotted his two-wheeler being parked in front of the hostel,” the student said.
Opposition parties BJP and Congress have been demanding resignation of Minister Dibya Shankar Mishra claiming that he has links with Govind Sahu. Several photos and videos of Mishra attending events at the school in the past and praising Sahu have surfaced.
The murder of 24-year-old Mamita Sahu of Jharni village under Turekela block of Balangir district has sent shockwaves across the state. After the arrest of prime accused Govind Sahu, it has been revealed that he had pre-planned the woman’s murder.
Mamita went missing on October 8. Alleging involvement of Govind Sahu behind her missing, Mamita’s family members had lodged a complaint with police.
On October 19, bones of Mamita’s body were exhumed from a stadium construction site of the school in the presence of police.
The woman’s body was chopped into pieces before being burnt, said a member of the scientific team probing into the incident.
Revealing further details on findings of the investigation into Mamita Meher murder case, DIG (Northern Range) Deepak Kumar informed that the deceased teacher was aware of two extra-marital affairs of main accused Govind Sahu and she had warned him to bring his illicit affairs to fore.
At a presser, the senior cop informed that since Mamita had threatened Sahu to expose him, the latter was holding a grudge against her. To take revenge, he decided to eliminate her.
“After strangling her to death inside his car on October 8, Sahu took the body to the under-construction stadium site of the school for disposal. The accused burnt the body with the help of petrol, cardboard and tyre, before burying it. The next morning, he covered the pit,” said the DIG.
