Bhadrak: Investigations into the mysterious murder of the woman in Bhadrak district ON Sunday night revealed that the daughter of the deceased person was raped by the accused.
The daughter of the deceased person was raped by the accused, Bhadrak SP Batula Gangadhar on Monday informed.
“The biological samples collected from the crime spot and bedroom hints that the daughter of the deceased woman was sexually assaulted. We have sent the samples to the forensic laboratory for a thorough examination,” the SP said.
The accused might have attacked the woman to death during her attempt to save her daughter from the sexual assault, he added.
The incident took place at Talachitha village under Dhamnagar police limits in the district late last night. The deceased was identified as Bhaktilata Beuria, wife of Rabi Beuria.
According to reports, the youth, identified as Gopinath Mohanty of the same village, knocked the door of the victim’s house. When his wife opened the door, the accused attacked her with a stone leading to her death on the spot.
Hearing her screams, Bhaktilata’s daughter Lijarani rushed to the spot to save her mother but she also became a victim of the attack.
“After thrashing me severely, the youth tied my hands and legs and fled the spot immediately. He had telephoned us from my father’s mobile number before entering our house,” Lijarani had told police this morning.
However, the investigation brought a new twist to the case.
The victim’s husband was not present in the house when the incident took place.
