Bhubaneswar: BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra has urged the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) to form a committee to launch a separate probe into the kidnapping and murder of five-year-old Nayagarh girl ‘Pari’ and also the allegations pertaining to the involvement of an organ trafficking racket behind the brutal crime.
Patra, who submitted a memorandum in this regard to the NCPCR Chairman Priyank Kanoongo in Delhi on Monday morning, said that the role of the State Higher Education Minister Arun Sahoo in the case, which was evident in a viral audio-tape conversation, should also be revealed.
“We have requested the NCPCR to form its own committee and launch a spot inquiry into the murder and alleged organ trafficking case. The role of State Higher Education Minister in the case as evident in the viral audio-tape conversation should also be exposed,” said Patra.
Patra said that the Commission has been urged to summon the Collector and Superintendent of Police (SP) of Nayagarh district to Delhi and question them about the reasons for the delay in the investigation process. “Kanoongo has agreed to look into the case and issue necessary orders at the earliest,” he said.
Earlier on Saturday, Patra in a series of tweets, had promised to continue the fight to ensure justice to ‘Pari’.
“The fight between good and evil began from a lane in Nayagarh and will soon reach the National Capital,” he had stated.
Patra’s tweets had come hours after the Odisha Government announced to issue the notification for a court-monitored SIT probe into the case.
