Balangir, Oct 21: The excavator driver is likely to be apprehended in connection with the lady teacher’s kidnap and murder case.
The excavator operator Puskar Bhoi who was earlier detained on the statement of the night watcher Gupte Tandi may be arrested today.
Sources said Puskar had allegedly topped up soil on the body remnants of lady teacher Mamita Meher, being incited by President of Sunshine Public school, Govind Sahu.
However, the police have not mentioned anything regarding Bhoi’s arrest, so far. He is under police custody since interrogation is on to ascertain his involvement with the crime.
Police seek answers from the excavator driver, whether he filled the pit having aware of the crime or he did it unknowingly. On the other hand, the excavator which was used to conceal the crime under earth may be seized as a weapon.
