JHARSUGUDA: More skeletons have started to tumble out of the closet with former MLA Anup Sai’s driver Barman Toppo revealing that two vehicles were used to maul the bodies of the mother-daughter duo and destroy their identity.

Toppo, who was grilled by Chhattisgarh police on Saturday, confessed to his alleged involvement in the double murder and divulged the horrific details of the crime.

Two vehicles, a Bolero and an Innova, were used to mutilate the bodies of Kalpana Das and her minor daughter. 

The driver further revealed that the mother-daughter duo was first beaten to death with iron rods and later, their bodies run over by the two vehicles a number of times to disfigure them.

The gruesome murders were carried out near Sakambari Plant of Chhattisgarh’s Raigarh district. The driver’s revelation has confirmed the involvement of other people in the crime.

Raigarh SP Santosh Singh said, “Toppo has admitted to his and Sai’s involvement in the crime. Basing on his revelations, police have launched a manhunt to nab another accomplice in the murders.”

On the day, Toppo was arrested and remanded to judicial custody.

Besides, we will carry out Narco test on Toppo and Sai to co-relate the sequence of events and secure more details of the case from the accused duo,” Singh said. Earlier on the day, police took Toppo to Hamirpur forest area, where the murders took place, to recreate the crime scene.
