Nayagarh: Even as the Opposition BJP in Odisha has taken to streets demanding CBI investigation into the disappearance and subsequent murder of a 5-year-old girl in Nayagarh district, police in coastal Balasore district on Monday recovered the body of another missing 7-year-old girl in a bush.
Swati went missing Friday last (December 11) and a massive search operation was launched by the police and Odisha Fire Services personnel to trace her. The exact reason behind Swati’s death can be ascertained only after a detailed probe. Asked whether she was murdered or died due to some other reasons, a senior police official said that things will get clear after the body is sent for an autopsy and the reports are obtained.
Sources said Swati, daughter of Sanjay Sahoo, who was playing outside her house went missing between 2-2.30 PM. Frantic attempts made by her family members to trace her did not yield any result, forcing them to lodge a missing complaint with Ranpur Police in connection with the incident.
