Nayagarh, Jan 4: Saroj Sethi, who has been arrested by SIT headed by ADG Arun Bothra in connection with the killing of 5-year-old girl Paree, on Monday said he is innocent and the SIT has beaten him.
“I am innocent. I have not committed any crime,” Sethi told reporters outside the POCSO court here.
He too stated that he was beaten by the SIT.
Notably, Sethi, an 18-year-old college student of Jadudpur village, was arrested by the SIT in December. SIT claims to have gathered evidences that Soroj killed Paree and dumped her body in a village pond in July 2020.
Paree of the same Jadupur village had gone missing on July 14 and her skeletal remains were found wrapped in a gunny bag about 10 days after her missing.
