Bhubaneswar: It has been over two weeks since the mysterious death of Ramadevi Women’s University student Jharaphula Nayak, but the Jajpur Police is still mum in the case.
Although police have post-mortem and viscera reports, they are yet to reveal the cause of death of Jharaphula in a press conference.
“The investigators had told that the viscera report will raise the curtain over mystery behind the death. Even four days after getting the report, Why the Jajpur Police is silent? asked Jharaphula’s father Ramakanta Nayak while expressing distress in slow progress in the case.
As the deceased belongs to the Scheduled Tribe (ST) category, the Jajpur police is not giving much importance to the matter, he alleged.
His reaction came after the Commissionerate Police cracked the headless woman case in Bhubaneswar within seven days.
Jharaphula Nayak, a resident of Brundeiposi village under Jashipur police limits in Mayurbhanj district and an under-graduate student of Philosophy Department in Odisha’s premier women’s varsity, had died mysteriously after staying with her alleged boyfriend Rakesh Swain at a private guesthouse on January 26 in Dharma Vihar under Khandagiri police station area in Bhubaneswar.
Next morning, the body was dumped near Kuakhia area in Jajpur district, around 90 km away from the capital city.
Reports said that Rakesh with help his friend Sekhar had taken the body on a scooter from Bhubaneswar to dump the body in Jajpur.
Sixteen days have passed since the mysterious death of Jharaphula. The main accused Rakesh Swain was arrested within two days of the incident. But, the mystery is yet to be cracked as Rakesh’s aide Sekhar, who had driven the scooter is still at large.
