A resident of Jharni village under Turekela block of Balangir district, the 24-year-old also served as warden of the girls’ hostel of the school. She went missing on October 8.

Her family members suspected Sahu behind her kidnapping since she had threatened to expose him and bring his illicit affair to the fore.

The opposition parties had also demanded the resignation of Minister of State for Home Dibya Shankar Mishra, after a video of him praising Sahu at a recent function held at Sunshine English Medium School went viral. It was alleged that Sahu managed to slip out of the police barrack due to his political connections.
