Cuttack: In a turn of events on the death of popular TV serial actress Laxmipriya Behera aka Nikita, her father today accused her husband and in-laws of her murder.

Nikita's father Sanatan Behera visited the Chauliaganj Police Station and submitted a written complaint accusing her husband Lipan Sahu and his family of murdering his daughter.

Briefing mediapersons after coming out of the police station, Sanatan said, "I was under mental pressure till yesterday. Today I lodged a complaint that my daughter has been murdered by her husband and in-laws. She has been pushed off the roof by her husband."

Nikita along with her four-month-old son was staying in her parents house after her delivery. On the fateful day Lipan had came to their house and had some argument with Nikita. Amidst this, they went to the roof for further discussion.

Five minutes after it, a scream was heard and Lipan came rushing down the roof saying that Nikita fell from the roof, said Nikita's father.

Sanatan further informed that though he was never pressured for dowry, Nikita's in-laws had their eyes on her income which had decreased after her marriage. For the initial eight months of her marriage everything was fine but later she had been thrown out by her in-laws and staying separately in Bhubaneswar.

Earlier on Friday night, Nikita reportedly fell down from the terrace of her paternal house in Mahanadi Vihar, where she was staying from the past several days.

She was rushed to a private nursing home in CDA where she succumbed a day later. Prima facie evidence suggested that she died because of traumatic head injuries. Police Commissioner Satyajit Mohanty had said further action on the case will be taken based on the post mortem reports.
