Berhampur: A senior doctor of sub-divisional hospital, Chhatrapur and one of his servants were arrested Monday on the charge of killing a 45-year old man and chopping his body parts, police said.
Hrusikesh Tripathy (55), surgery specialist and owner of a private clinic near New Bus-stand here and his servant Bidhan Sethi (35) were arrested for killing Bishnu Prasad Gouda of Bania village. Gouda was killed on August 19 at the doctor’s clinic, they said.
Police said the doctor was nabbed at Bhubaneswar on Sunday. Earlier, police had arrested Ganga Behera (50) another servant of the doctor in this murder case.
Police seized two bloodstained surgery blades, three gloves, four empty saline bottles, Gouda’s bike keys and a pair of shoes from his clinic.
Preliminary investigation has revealed that the incident might be taken place over affairs between Gouda and a nurse working at the doctor’s private clinic.
“Doctor killed him (Gouda) in order to remove him permanently from the life of the nurse,” said SP (Berhampur) Pinak Mishra.
The doctor had given an injection to Gouda and after sometimes, he fell down. Gouda’s body was cut into three pieces. The body parts were packed in the polythene bags which was dumped in a waste pit at Bada Gumula village, about 22-km from here, police said.
During the investigation, Behera showed the place where the doctor buried Gouda’s body. The police exhumed the body parts on September 12.
“Though the doctor has confessed to the crime, we are waiting for the post-mortem report to know about the type of injection he had injected Gouda with,” the SP said.
