The accused will be produced in the POCSO Court tomorrow.

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.
