Earlier on December 22, SIT Chief Arun Bothra, who was probing the Pari murder case, had revealed that accused Soroj Sethy had tried to rape the 5-year-old Pari of Jadupur village in Nayagarh district after strangulating her to death inside his house on July 14.
At a presser, he informed that Pari had gone to Saroj’s house, about 100 metre away from her house, at around 10.30 AM on July 14 to collect berries. On the fateful day, Saroj was alone in his house as his mother and sister had left for their offices. Finding her alone that day, Saroj took her to a room and removed her frock. Later, when he was about to remove her leggings, she resisted and started to scream. As she opposed the act, Saroj strangulated her to death.
