Police, investigating the sensational death case of software engineer Sweta Utkal Kumari, on Thursday recorded statement of the deceased’s friend who divulged some startling information about Sweta’s relationship with her boyfriend Soumyajit.

One of her friends said, “For the last six months, Sweta and Soumyajit were not on good terms. But, Soumyajit had started ignoring her after his admission into XIMB. Sweta was well aware of the fact that Soumyajit had betrayed three girls before falling in love with her. So, Sweta had insisted him to get married if he wanted to continue the relationship.”

She further added: “Sweta’s parents had visited Soumyajit’s house in Sambalpur where the latter’s parents informed that Soumyajit had taken a study loan to pursue MBA and told them (Sweta's parents) for the repayment.”

Talking about intimate photos of the duo, Sweta’s friend said, “Yes I knew it. Sweta had once told me that she is afraid because Soumyajit had her intimate pics saved in his phone. I know her since 2013. She was very loyal and honest. During Covid, she took care of Soumyajit like a mother.”

Meanwhile, police have obtained some portions of Sweta’s diary. Sweta is believed to have written it many days back when she was on good terms with Soumyajit. About her relationship with Soumyajit, she had written, “Our rapport is getting stronger day by day.” 

On another page, she had written, "Soumyajit had accepted me as his wife. God please take away all our suffering." In the end, she had written- ‘Soumyajit loves Sweta’.

On the other hand, family members of Sweta today met Bhubaneswar DCP Prateek Singh and informed him about the relationship Sweta used to share with her boyfriend Soumyajit Mohapatra. 

“Sweta’s four friends knew everything. The truth will come out if police will interrogate her friends”, they claimed. Sweta’s parents even showed a few messages sent by Sweta to Soumyajit.

“We have complete faith in police. The truth will come out if the inquiry is done properly,” said Sweta’s parents.

Sweta’s brother said, “DCP sir has assured us that we will get justice. Whatever we had, we shared with the DCP. We provided phone numbers of Sweta’s bosom friends.”

Resenting tardy pace of probe, Sweta’s father Sushant Kumar said, "Soumyajit along with his parents had come to Chandrasekharpur police station on Sunday when we had come to file a complaint against him. They went to the police station, after we had left. Soumyajit had been torturing my daughter mentally, physically and financially to such an extent that she was forced to commit suicide. Police should arrest him and take stringent action against him without delay.”

Meanwhile, CDR (Call Detail Record) report revealed Sweta had made 15 phone calls to Soumyajit at around 1:30AM, an hour before she allegedly ended her life in the apartment. However, Soumyajit had not picked up her calls. 

Sweta, a resident of Bhadrak, who worked with a reputed IT company in Bhubaneswar, was believed to be in a relationship with Soumyajit. The family members of the deceased alleged that she took the extreme step after being blackmailed by her boyfriend.

“Soumyajit ruined the life of my daughter. I would like to request the State government to order a probe and take stringent action against Soumyajit,” said deceased Sweta’s mother.
