Bhubaneswar: Co-accused in the double murder case Bardhan Toppo, also, driver and a close aide of former MLA Anup Sai was arrested by the Chhattisgarh police last night.
While Toppo’s family has maintained that he is innocent, Toppo was named by Sai of being involved in the brutal murder of one Kalpana Das and her minor daughter.
Bringing clarity to the case, Raighar SP Santosh Kumar Singh had yesterday said that Sai had confessed to killing Kalpana and her daughter after their illicit relation went wayward. Sai had said that under his orders his driver Toppo used an iron rod to kill Das and her daughter. Later Sai had instructed him to run an SUV over the bodies to conceal their identities.
Ex-MLA Anup Sai was arrested on Thursday and has been forwarded to court.
