A couple of days after Bolangir Police cracked the death mystery of one Biswadev Sahu, whose half-burnt body was found behind the PG Hostel at Rajendra University on Tuesday, a video clip capturing the moments following the brutal killing has now gone viral on several social media platforms.
The video clip purportedly showed the two accused-- Amit Manhira and Subham Singh burning the dead body of Sahu after killing him with a sharp weapon and brandishing the murder weapon.
Singh, while recording the video, can be seen issuing life-threatening to someone who is yet to be established.
“Dekh jalaya jaa raha hai maar ke insaan ko. Main yahin jalaya hun. Dekh jaa rahein hain jalake, abhi nikalte hain" (See, a man is being burnt after murder. I have set him on fire at this spot. And, we are going after killing and burning him), Singh said in the video clip.
Threatening for life to someone by brandishing the murder weapon, Singh could be seen saying, “Dekh le beta issi se khoon hua hai, isse se khoon kiya hoon. Ab teri bari hai" (I have killed him with this weapon and it’s your turn now).
Earlier on Wednesday, Bolangir Sadar SDPO Tofan Bag had said Manhira and Sahu had developed feelings for a girl and were at loggerheads over it. However, their friend Singh had turned into a mediator between them and was trying to solve the disputes.
In order to solve the dispute between the two, Singh had called Manhira and Sahu to the backside of PG Hostel at Rajendra University on Tuesday. However, Sahu got into a war of words with Manhira and Singh afterwards, the SDPO said.
Manhira and Singh lost cool and in a fit of rage, attacked Sahu with a sharp weapon leading to his death on the spot. Later, the duo set Sahu’s body on fire and fled the crime scene.
Bolangir Police picked up both of them for questioning suspecting their involvement in the case and during the interrogation, both confessed to the crime.
