A four-member team of Crime Branch on Tuesday reached Titlagarh town to probe into the murder of BJD leader Abhimanyu Sahu.

The team also visited the spot where the body of Sahu was found.

The team discussed with Sahu’s family members and relatives and saw the CCTV video footage in the police station.

Some miscreants had killed Sahu by slitting his throat while he was going on morning walk on Sunday. After the incident, local residents gheraoed the police station on Sunday and Monday and called for bandh.

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader and former minister Narasingha Mishra alleged that a political conspiracy involving some powerful leaders of the BJD was behind Sahu’s murder. Crime Branch will not be able to bring the cause of the murder to light because of the involvement of ruling party leaders, he said adding that only a CBI probe can reveal the truth.

“As an advocate, I have conducted a lot of murder cases and closely witnessed the behaviour of a criminal before and after committing the crime.  As per my observation, there are a lot of circumstantial evidences in this murder case which can lead to the people who had hatched the conspiracy to kill Sahu,” said Mishra.
