Mamita Meher murder case: Mobile phone recovered from house of Govinda Sahu’s driver

Bhubaneswar: A mobile phone has been recovered from the house of prime accused Govinda Sahu’s driver Radhe. Reportedly, Radhe’s wife Asha Chandi handed over a bag that was kept under the bed which consisted one charger, three pairs of ladies dress and some medicines along with the mobile phone.

It is being suspected that recovered phone might belong to the deceased, added reports.

Radhe’s wife has defended him and said that he is innocent, added reports. Radhe was detained after police nabbed Govind and later on Thursday he was also arrested.

Earlier today, Balangir Police took Govinda to the crime spot for scene recreation between 4 am to 4.30 am today. The accused showed the demo of crime scene in presence of Uttaranchal DIG and Kalahandi SP.

On Thursday, the JCB driver Pushkar Bhoi and his colleague Munsi Gupteswar Tandi became the State witness. The prime accused Govinda has been taken to five day remand after he confessed on Wednesday about the pre-planned murder of Mamita. He confessed that he burnt and buried her body in a pit at the stadium in order to destroy evidence.

It is to be noted that Mamita was aware of his extra marital affair due to which Govinda had a grudge against her and in order to take revenge, he decided to eliminate her, the Northern Range DIG had informed in a press meet on Wednesday. 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.
