We suspect the other two accused persons have fled Odisha and are in hiding in some other state. Our efforts are on to locate them. We need to take the three arrested accused on at least three days remand to elicit from them details of their planning before the crime and on their stay in hiding at various locations,” informed Dr R P Sharma, twin city Police Commissioner here today.

Commissionerate Police had arrested Kishore Behera alias Timpa, Mohammad Kamal Khan alias Munna and Munna’s wife Nini on Saturday. The other two accused in the crime Tikina and her husband Jawan are absconding.
