Bhubaneswar: Hours after a confession video of the accused in the sensational Nayagarh minor girl murder case created a political hail storm in the State, the mother of the deceased girl raised serious doubts over the intention of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) stating she has lost complete faith in the probe agency.
“How could the video of the accused purportedly confessing to the crime go viral when it was submitted to the court in a sealed envelope? I have lost faith in the SIT,” said the mother of the victim while talking to reporters at her home in Jadupur village. “In fact, the SIT is making a mockery of the case,” she added.
Notably, a new twist in the heart wrenching Nayagarh minor girl murder case came on Thursday morning after a video was played out in a section of television news channels of Odisha showing the minor accused making purported confession to the crime before a policeman, ostensibly the investigating officer of the case.
It is pertinent to mention here that the veracity of the video is yet to be ascertained. In fact, the SIT too is keeping a conspicuous silence and still to respond on the veracity of the video footage that has made the political corridors abuzz with speculations at a time when the Odisha Assembly is in session.
However, people on the know of things are of the opinion that the video evidence is not admissible in a court of law hearing the case.
