Sundargarh: A day after the recovery of some body parts of a Gaon Sathi from a field on the outskirts of Karei village, Sadar Police on Friday recovered his severed head, leg and hand from a pond.
According to police, Ramesh Singh, a native of Bhabanipur village, was working as Gaon Sathi in Karei Panchayat. On January 13, he was returning home in the afternoon when he met one of his friends and went with him on the bike. In the evening, he told his brother Bishnu that he will be late to home.
As he did not return home that night, his family members launched a frantic search and on failure to locate him, they lodged a complaint at Sadar Police Station the next day.
Acting on the complaint, police launched a search operation and found a severed hand from a field about 200 metres from the Biju Expressway on Thursday afternoon.
As the family members identified the severed hand of Ramesh, police intensified the search and recovered the headless body and a severed leg from a pond near the under-construction cold storage on the outskirts of the village late night.
Police and Fire Brigade again searched the pond on Friday morning and recovered the severed head, hand and leg.
Till reports last came in, a scientific team and a sniffer dog were at the the spot and investigation was on.
