Sharma, however, said that police was yet to get evidence of a racket being involved in the deal.

On Wednesday, Sharma had revealed that the information provided before the authorization committee about the income of the victim’s husband was false.

“We came to know that false information about Bhabagrahi Nayak’s (woman’s husband) income was provided to the authorisation committee. The document provided to the committee showed that Nayak had an income of Rs 2.6 lakh from various sources, including some business, while in reality he is a rickshaw puller” said Commissioner of Police Dr RP Sharma.

It may be recalled here that police began investigating the case after Sarat Nayak , the brother- in-law of Padmini Nayak , the victim, a resident of Nayak Sahi under Mangalabag police limits, complained before the police that his sister-in-law and brother had been kidnapped after being lured by a kidney trade racket with the promise of huge money.
