Missing Lady Teacher Case: Police Announce Rs 1 L For Informer Of ‘Most Wanted’ Govind Sahu In Odisha’s Balangir

Balangir/Bhawanipatna: Balangir Police on Tuesday circulated posters of Govind Sahu, managing committee president of Sunshine English Medium School in Kalahandi district, who had escaped from the police custody.

The posters declaring Sahu as ‘most wanted’ have been pasted in the town, Sindhekela and Titlagarh of the district. The police, who had announced a cash reward of Rs 20,000 for sharing information on Sahu has hiked the amount to Rs 1 lakh.

Anybody, who has information that can lead to trace absconding Sahu, has been requested to contact Balangir SP on his mobile phone number printed on the poster.

Sahu was detained in Titlagarh police barrack in Balangir district, after he was accused of kidnapping a teacher of his school Mamita Meher in the FIR filed by the latter’s  brother at Sindhekela police station. Sahu had escaped from the barrack on the plea of going to clean his hands on Sunday.

The police have launched a manhunt to nab Sahu and put up blockades at all entry and exit points in Titlagarh town. They have seized the car reportedly registered in the name of Sahu in Sindhekela.

Meanwhile, the police have found a body buried in the ground of the school stadium while digging it up on suspicion that Mamita was killed and buried there. While the body is yet to be identified, it has been sent to a laboratory for DNA testing, police sources said.

A gold chain and anklets were found beside the recovered body. Mamita’s family said she was wearing a gold chain and a pair of anklets while leaving the house on the day she went missing.
