Dhenkanal goldsmith murder: Cops nab BSF jawan from Assam
Dhenkanal: Dhenkanal police on Saturday arrested a BSF jawan from Assam in connection with the sensational murder of a jewellery shop owner in Meena Bazaar of Dhenkanal district in September this year.
The accused, identified as Sanjay Kumar, has been arrested for the murder of Mantu Patra (40). Sanjay reportedly committed the crime at the behest of Mantu’s wife Aruna with whom he had an illicit relationship.
On October 4, the police had cracked the case and arrested Aruna for masterminding the crime. However, Sanjay, who works as a BSF in Assam, was absconding.
In a statement to the media, Additional SP Harekrushna Pradhan had said that Aruna had hatched the plan to eliminate her husband with Sanjay.
Aruna had served poison-laced food to her husband and subsequently killed him by slitting his throat with the help of her Sanjay in a broad daylight on September 3.
