Bhubaneswar: Kishore Kumar Aanchal, the alleged boyfriend of deceased nurse Niharika whose disfigured body was found on Biluakhai river bank on September 18 surrendered before police in Jagatsinghpur district on Friday.
Niharika’s family had earlier confirmed that she and Kishore alias Raja were in love for some time now. Niharika’s brother-in-law Gaurang Jati stressed that since Raja was the last person with whom Niharika was last seen alive; he is the one who must have killed her.
Her mother Pratima Patra had also held Raja responsible for the tragedy and hoped that he would get punished for the same. After his surrender family members of Niharika have demanded death sentence for Raja.
Meanwhile, the blood samples of Niharika’s parents have been collected at Capital Hospital in Bhubaneswar for DNA test to confirm identity of the body.
