Bhubaneswar: A dead body has been recovered from the under-construction stadium at Mahaling in Kalahandi district, where police had started digging today morning to trace the missing lady teacher Mamita Meher.
Reportedly, the body was found buried. Police have called the family members of Mamita to identify the body. It will also be sent for forensic test to ascertain whether it is the body of the missing teacher.
Mamita Meher of Sunshine English Medium School in Mahaling of Kalahandi district has been missing for 11 days. Suspecting she was murdered and buried in the Mahaling High School Stadium, Police had started digging in the area today morning.
As per sources, Gobinda Sahu, President of Sunshine School management committee and the prime accused in the case, is the contractor of the stadium.
Police had detained Sahu after an FIR was lodged against him by Mamita’s brother Bunty, who had alleged that Sahu was operating a sex racket in the school which his sister had vehemently opposed and threatened to expose.
Sahu, however, managed to escape from Titlagarh police barrack on Sunday. While he is still untraceable, Sindhekela police have seized a car reportedly registered in his name. Balangir SP has issued a reward of One lakh for any possible leads on Sahu.
