PHULBANI: Daringbadi has been witnessing a flurry of activities since Thursday after the State Government agreed to release four political prisoners for safe return of the abducted Italian national, Paolo Bosusco.

The block headquarters town is chock-a-block with media camping here to cover the release of the Italian.  

Sources said before the release of Claudio Colangelo on March 25, the Maoists had kept the two abducted Italians under a jackfruit tree at Adipanka village inhabited by 20 tribal families. They were kept there till March 23. The next day, the duo was shifted to Jirakua village and later to Pajibara village. From Pajibara village, Colangelo had to walk till Ramanabadi village with armed Maoists. Around noon, the Italian hostage was handed over to the media representatives, who were waiting near the village.

This time around, speculations are rife that Paolo may be set free near Chhadakia village under Daringbadi panchayat or Kudigunji or Sirkaberg area under Danekbadi panchayat.
