Bhadrak: In a fresh twist to the sensational double murder and rape case of Dhamnagar in Bhadrak, the police today set aside the statement of the accused who had claimed that he committed the crime to avenge torture of his parents by the deceased couple.
While informing about the crime plot at a press meet, Bhadrak SP Batula Gangadhar said revenge was not the reason behind the crime what the accused, Babua Mohanty, had claimed before media earlier. Rather, he conspired to kill all the family members in a bid to loot Rs 2 lakh, which was withdrawn by the deceased Rabindra Beuria two days ago, the SP said.
As per the plan, he first called Rabindra to outside and made him drunk. Later, the accused tied his hands and legs and threw him into a swollen culvert leading to his death. Later, he returned to Rabindra’s home and attacked his wife-Bhaktilata- with a grinding stone leaving her dead on the spot. Then he allegedly raped his daughter and also tried to kill her. However, a neighbour reached the spot by that time and he fled the spot, SP further added.
