Bhawanipatna: Govind Sahu, managing committee president of Sunshine English Medium School at Mahaling in Odisha’s Kalahandi district, who is allegedly involved in the missing of Mamita Meher, a woman teacher of the educational institution, escaped from police custody, last night.
Sahu was detained at the Titlagarh police barrack. Balangir SP has suspended three police personnel over dereliction of duty.
Notably, Mamita went missing around ten days ago. Her family members alleged that Sahu was sexually harassing women employees of the school and forcing them to have physical relation with him.
Mamita had recently warned Sahu of exposing him and bringing his illicit affairs to fore. He is definitely behind the missing of Mamita, the woman’s kin alleged.
An audio clip featuring a conversation between one of Mamita’s colleagues and her brother has also surfaced and gone viral. In the clip, Mamita’s colleague can be heard informing her brother about Sahu’s involvement in sexually harassing the female employees of the school.
Her colleague was also telling her brother that Sahu had called Mamita on the pretext of an official meeting, a day before she went missing.
Mamita’s brother Bunty had filed a complaint against Sahu with the police, following which the accused was detained by the cops for questioning.
The missing woman’s family members had also alleged police inaction claiming that the cops were reluctant to arrest Sahu.
In another shocking development, Mamita’s brother Bunty has alleged that Sahu was operating a sex racket in the school, to which her sister was opposing and had threatened to expose it. Sahu might might have killed or abducted her, he said.
On the other hand, Santosh Singh Saluja, Congress MLA from Kantabanji, demanded resignation of Minister Dibya Shankar Mishra as several photos of the accused with Mishra have surfaced. The minister had also joined a function at the educational institution.
Saluja yesterday met the family members of Mamita and demanded an impartial probe into the incident.
