The diatom report on Saturday further confirmed that Chinmayi Priyadarshini Sahoo, a former student of Veer Surendra Sai University of Technology (VSSUT), had died of drowning. Earlier the post-mortem report had also highlighted drowning as the cause of death.
Chinmayi, a VSSUT student from Burla, Sambalpur, went missing after falling into the channel while visiting the Power Channel bridge in Burla. On March 1, her body was discovered.
Chinamyi’s family members claimed she was murdered because there were injury marks around her neck.
