Dhenkanal: An elderly couple, whose son is undergoing jail term for murdering his wife, has alleged that their granddaughter has been sold in Goa by one of their son's friend.

Reportedly, a person from Dakhinapasi village under Gondia police limits of Dhenkanal district is lodged in jail for the last few years for murdering his wife. While his three children are presently staying with their grandparents, one of his friend identified as Bana Maharana of Beltikiri village had taken his elder daughter around one and half year back on pretext of taking care of her.

Few days back, the grandfather of the girl approached the District Child Welfare Committee (CWC) alleging that Bana has sold the girl in Goa. However, refuting the allegations, Bana said he had taken the girl on request of her father and she is presently studying in Goa with his son.

Meanwhile, Dhenkanal SDPO Sk Abdul Karim said, "The CWC has sent a report in this regard to the SP based on which a case has been registered at Gondia police station under section 370, 34 of IPC and section 81 of Juvenile Justice Act. A team has been formed to rescue the girl soon."
