Union Minister demands CBI probe into Odisha minor girl’s rape, murder
Nayagarh: Speaking for the first time about the Pari rape and murder case in Odisha’s Nayagarh, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan today demanded a CBI probe into the matter.
Pradhan said truth will come out if the Odisha government hands over the five-year-old girl’s rape and murder case to the Central probe agency. “As Pari’s parents are unhappy with the SIT’s findings and have been demanding a CBI probe, their demands can be considered,” he added.
Like the Uttar Pradesh government which handed over the Hatharas gang rape and murder case to the CBI, the Odisha government should follow the footsteps and come forward recommending for a probe by the central agency for an impartial probe, Pradhan stated.
He also said that there are allegations of the involvement of an organ racket in the case.
Worth mentioning, the minor girl’s parents have been demanding a CBI probe into her rape and murder in Jadupur village in Nayagarh district. Even though the SIT of Odisha Crime Branch arrested one Saroj Sethy as prime accused in the case, the girl’s parents and political parties have been demanding a CBI investigation.
Odisha BJP organized a padyatra from Bhubaneswar to Jadupur village demanding over the issue few days back.
