Bhubaneswar: Even as 10 days have passed since Cuttack MM Medicare nurse Niharika went missing and later found dead, the police are yet to find out strong clues behind the ghastly incident and arrest any culprit involved in it.
According to latest reports, the police have detained six persons who are relative of the girl’s boyfriend now. Niharika’s boyfriend’s father, younger brother and four friends are now being interrogated by the Biridi police in Jagatsingpur district.
Notably, the body of Niharika, a resident of Khurda district, was found wrapped in a gunny bag and lying on the the Biluakhai riverbed near Biridi. A CCTV footage of the clinic showed that a helmet wearing biker had waited for Niharika outside the MM Medicare at around 4.30 pm and Niharika went with him on September 8.
During preliminary investigation, police found that one Kishore Chandra Anchal was the boyfriend of Niharika. Kishore is a resident of Dudurapatana village near Hajipur under the Biridi police station. As the body was recovered from the Biluakhai riverbed near Biridi, police have suspected that Kishore is behind the murder and, thus, detained his father, younger brother and four of his friends. The police are searching for Kishore now.
