Bhubaneswar: In a recent development in the murder case of Mamita Meher, her father has demanded justice for them and asked for death sentence punishment for the prime accused Govinda Sahu.
Meanwhile, Chairperson of Odisha State Commission for Women (OSCW) Minati Behera visited Mamita’s house along with a team of four officials to meet with her family. Thereafter, she met with Kalahandi district collector, the District Education Officer and the Kalahandi SP in order to discuss regarding the death case.

Balangir Police took Govinda to the crime spot for scene recreation between 4 am to 4.30 am today and showed the demo of crime scene in presence of Uttaranchal DIG and Kalahandi SP. He had already confessed that he burnt and buried her body in a pit at the stadium in order to destroy evidence.
The JCB driver Pushkar Bhoi and his colleague Munsi Gupteswar Tandi became the State witness.

In a fit of rage, Govinda pre-planned her murder and killed Mamita inside a Wagon R car while they were en-route to Kegaon from Bhawanipatna on October 8. Thereafter, he burned the body using card board and tyres in a previously dug pit at the mini stadium and covered it the next day morning.
The police on Tuesday arrested most wanted Govinda Sahu, who had escaped from custody after he was detained based on a complaint by his family regarding Mamita’s missing case. He was nabbed from Budhipadar village under Bangamunda block in Balangir.
