1 more held; victim’s father alleges plot

Friday, 14 February 2020 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Police on Thursday arrested another youth in connection with the firing at an NIFT girl student in the Infocity area here.

Earlier, the girl’s boyfriend Asish Kumar Nayak had been held. Though police had earlier said Asish was present with the girl when the incident took place at a rented house in Sishu Vihar, the arrest of another youth, Pradeep Agasti alias Tuka, has again given a twist to the case. Police sources said Tuka was present at the victim’s flat when the firing took place.

The girl’s father alleged, “Tuka’s wife might also be involved in hatching a conspiracy in executing the firing. She had earlier issued threats to her.”

Asked why Tuka’s wife would target his daughter, he added, “Tuka’s wife was suspecting a relationship between my daughter and Tuka. She wanted to kill my daughter. Tuka and his wife are prime accused whereas Asish has got a contract to kill my daughter.”
