Honour Killing: Father Dumps Body Of Unmarried Daughter In Jungle After Futile Abortion Bid

**Jagatsinghpur:** Six persons were detained by the police on the grounds of a murder of 23-yr-old Siku Satar, who was 6-months pregnant. The arrested persons include the woman’s father Ajay Sutar, his brother Litu Sutar , a doctor and his three accomplices hailing from Anolipatana village under Kujang police station here.

Notably, Siku was not married and was pregnant. It is suspected that her father and brother forcibly took her to a nearby nursing home, Mamata Clinic in Jagatsinghpur where an attempt was made to abort the baby. Due to advanced pregnancy, some complications arose during the alleged abortion attempt and she died.

To cover up the crime, the father and brother of the dead woman tied her hands and legs, dumped it into a sack, and threw it in Dhalatangagada forest range under Raghunathpur police limits.

The police recovered the body soon after and started its investigation.

Though the family members and the villagers are tight-lipped regarding this incident, it is suspected that the woman had an affair with a man of the same village and got pregnant, inviting ire of the family members.
