Balugaon, 16/12: Kaberi Behera was remanded to jail today on the charge of killing her sister-in-law (husband’s younger sister). She has confessed to have committed the crime following heated argument over a silly matter.
Kaberi had earlier enacted a drama saying that her sister-in-law Sibani was killed by a jilted lover.
She changed her version during the interrogation after her detention by police. She has confessed that Sibani had hurt her which infuriated her that led to the murder.
The victim Sibani was studying Plus Two in Balugaon College. She had heated argument with her sister-in-law Kaberi several time over love marriage with her elder brother, which was opposed by the family. On the day of the crime, the same argument was repeated over witnessing TV. Sibani called her sister-in-law as “maid servant”, which infuriated her and she silted Sibani’s throat with a knife, confessed Kaberi.
During the incident, Sibani and Kaberi were alone in the house. Her father-in-law had gone to their shop while her mother-in-law had been to neighbour’s house. After killing Sibani, Kaberi enacted a drama. She said that she saw a masked man in the backyard of their house slitting the throat of Sibani, when she had been to attend call of nature. The killer was a college mate of Sibani, who was having one side love towards her. When Sibani rejected his proposal, he killed her.
After committing the heinous crime, Kaberi was cool and normal. Hence, every body first believed her version. Seriously injured Sibani was admitted in the local hospital and later she was shifted to MKCG Medical College and Hospital in Berhampur. However, Sibani breathed her last during the treatment there.
Meanwhile, police arrested Kaberi and forwarded to court following her confession. Her finger print also matched with that on the knife used for killing Sibani. A case was registered in Balugaon police station. Kaberi was remanded to jail custody as her bail plea was rejected by the court.
