Ankita Bhandari, the receptionist working in the resort located in Ganga Bhogpur under Yamkeshwar block, is to bid farewell to moist eyes on Sunday. But her relatives have refused to perform the last rites. There is sorrow and anger among the people regarding the Ankita murder case. People blocked the Badrinath highway in Srinagar demanding that Ankita's post-mortem report be made public. Ankita's relatives have also said to perform the last rites only after receiving the post-mortem report. People created ruckus outside the mortuary.
Ankita's family members are not trusting the postmortem report for this reason. They are pleading for justice from the BJP government of the state. Ankita's body was recovered yesterday by SDRF from a canal near Chilla Power House. The accused in her murder have told the police that they had pushed Ankita into the canal. The family members suspect that the accused had done wrong things to Ankita before killing her. In such a situation, his father has again demanded a postmortem. Her father has also said that he is not going to rest till the death sentence is given to the culprits of the daughter's murder. Ankita's family is getting a lot of support from the local people as well as from other areas of Uttarakhand.
In the Ankita Bhandari murder case, SIT in-charge DIG PR Devi also told that Ankita's WhatsApp chats have surfaced. They are also being investigated. Efforts are on to get to the bottom of the matter soon. Everything in the matter is being investigated seriously.
Earlier, the police had inspected the spot and all these places from where the body was recovered. All the necessary evidence was collected from the spot. Based on the evidence, the investigation is being carried forward. Renuka Devi told that the matter will be taken to the fast track court.
