TNI Bureau: The main accused in the Nayagarh Pari muder case, has been sent to three-day SIT remand from tomorrow till 24 December by a POCSO Court. The accused is an adult, the SIT tells the court.
While the SIT led by IPS Arun Bothra, had sought 4-day remand for the accused, the POCSO Court granted 3-day remand starting from 22 December.
The accused will spent tonight in Nayagarh Sub-Jail. Earlier, the SIT had conducted his medical test before producing him in the Court.
5-year-old Pari was abducted on July 14, 2020. Her bones and body chopped in parts, stashed in a sack, were found in the backyard of her house on July 23, 2020.
The issue hogged the limelight only when Pari’s parents tried self-immolation outside the Odisha Assembly last month. As the matter took a huge political turn, triggering massive public outrage, CM Naveen Patnaik ordered a High Court-monitored SIT probe.
