NUAPADA: Nuapada police arrested four persons, including owner of a local clinic Amulya Khuntia (45), here on Saturday in connection with the death of a pregnant woman.
The other arrested are main accused Gangeswar Sahu (41) of Lakhna, Subal Das (45) of Sunabeda and Vyasadev Pradhan (40) of Kurumpuri under Lakhna police limits.
Briefing newsmen, DSP Rabindra Sethi said the woman  Gulapi (29) was living with her father Balaram Bag at Lakhna after being deserted by her husband. She had a one-year-old son.
However, Gangeswar developed physical relationship with Gulapi and impregnated her. When she was seven months pregnant, in a bid to abort the pregnancy, Gangeswar admitted her to the clinic on September 20. Khuntia administered her some medicines to abort the foetus. However, during treatment, Gulapi died on September 22. Apprehending trouble, Gangeswar and his acquaintances Subal and Vyasadev planned to dispose of Gulapi’s body. They took the body to Rasela village under Chhura police limits in Chhattisgarh and cremated it.
Getting information, Chhura police recovered the half- burnt body of the woman and registered a case on September 24.
Balaram had lodged a police complaint in Lakhna police station on September 27 stating that his daughter had left with Gangeswar and had not returned. Police unravelled the mystery behind Gulapi’s disappearance and arrested the four.
