The police are keeping their fingers crossed that the several teams they have sent in connection with the Kavita Raina murder case unearths something solid.

Investigations are still centered around those who were known to Kavita and their movement in the last 24 hours. Efforts are also on to trace those who were allegedly seen with Kavita or had come calling to the house before she disappeared.

One of the major tasks of the police is sifting through the lakhs of phone calls that have been recorded on the tower location from where Kavita disappeared.

Last night IG and ADG Vipin Maheshwari talking a section of the media said that the hard work being put by the Indore police would bear fruits. He said that rarely had so much effort been put to solve a murder case in recent times.

He said police had to be very careful while investigating such sensitive cases because apart from solving it, they also had to present it before the court as evidence.

The police are also being hampered by unauthorised people asking quesions to the family members posing to be journalists or police workers. Two such persons were caught and taken to the police station, but were later released.

Kamal Jatav who claimed to be a reporter from Punjab Kesari came to Kavita's house and started questioning the family members.

Some of the other regular reporters who were also present did not know him and when the police came it transpired that his press card had expired in 2013.

Another person Sanjay Garg, a resident of Chhavni, who claims to be a Congress worker, was also found sitting in the house.

Initially, police thought that he was part of the family and the family members though he was with the police, but later the confusion got cleared. When Garg was asked why he was there, he said he wanted to pay his respects to the family.
