‘Prime Conspirator’ In Cuttack Woman Murder Case Held
Cuttack: The alleged prime conspirator in the murder of a woman, who was found with her throat slit on July 15 in Cuttack’s Odia Bazaar, has been nabbed by police.
This comes a day after two brothers, neighbours of the 45-year-old deceased woman B Gunabati, were arrested on charges of killing her. Rao had engaged the duo to steal the laptop Gunabati’s son.
Cuttack DCP Pinak Mishra told the media on Monday that the accused brothers killed the woman when she tried to spot them from stealing the laptop from her house.
Without divulging his name, Mishra had said that the ‘prime conspirator’ approached the duo and offered to waive off the loan, which they had taken from him, against the laptop, which had some objectionable material involving the former’s sister with whom Gunabati’s son had an affair.
Accordingly, the two brothers struck while her husband and son were at the workplace. However, Gunabati opposed them as they took the laptop into their possession. Following this, they killed her, he added.
In his complaint, her husband B Apparao, who works in a printing press, had said that Gunabati was alone inside the house while he had gone to his workplace and their son Rabi was away at his office. He found her lying in a pool of blood on returning home for lunch.
