In a fresh revelation in the cameraman Manas Swain murder case, retired OIS officer Niranjan Sethi had reportedly helped prime accused Sarmistha Rout to escape to Jajpur.

According to reports, Sethi gave Rs 10,000 and a vehicle to Sarmistha for escaping to Kaliapani area in Jajpur district. The Odisha Crime Branch, which is probing into the case, was interrogating Sethi, Sarmistha and two other accused after taking them on remand, the period of which ends today.

For further probe, Sethi and Sarmistha were also being taken by the agency to the office of ‘Sampoorna’ magazine and web portal at Sundarpada in the capital city, which was run by the woman.

Worth mentioning, after committing the crime, Sarmistha along with her associate Jhuna Bhoi went to Koipasi village in Kaliapani area, where her mother-in-law resides, using the vehicle provided by Sethi. She stayed there for three days on the pretext of conducting a puja for the purpose of ‘reuniting’ with her husband. Later, they fled to West Bengal in a bid to evade arrest.
