Govinda killed Mamita inside his car while they were en-route to Kegaon from Bhawanipatna on October 8. Thereafter, he burned the body using cardboard and tyres in a previously dug pit at the mini stadium and covered it the next day morning.
He was detained by the cops based on a complaint filed by Mamita’s family members. However, he had escaped from the police custody. Later, he was nabbed from Budhipadar village under Bangamunda block in Balangir.
On the other hand, the Balangir police produced Sahu before the Bangomunda JMFC Court after the completion of his remand period. The court sent him to the Kantabanji sub-jail as the police did not seek further remand of the accused.
