CUTTACK: Mystery shrouds the death of Cuttack Nagar Congress Committee general secretary Sanjit Bhuyan who died after being rescued in a critical condition on Wednesday night.
Sanjit of Jhanjirmangala was found lying on Ring Road near the children’s park under Purighat police limits at about 11 pm. He was rushed to SCB Medical College and Hospital by some locals and later shifted to a private hospital where he was declared dead.
Family sources said 40-year-old Sanjit had gone to attend a function at CDA locality on his bike at about 9 pm. At about 11 pm, they were informed that he was found in a critical condition. ‘’We rushed to the hospital but found him dead. As his body sustained multiple injuries on head and neck, we suspect Sanjit was brutally attacked following which he succumbed,’’ said Susant Rout, a relative.
While an FIR was lodged with Purighat police by the deceased’s uncle Arupananda Rout alleging murder of his nephew, members of Cuttack Nagar Congress Committee headed by its president Mohammed Moquim met DCP Sanjeev Arora and submitted a memorandum.
In the memorandum, the city unit of congress alleged that Sanjit’s death was a pre-planned murder.
On the other hand, DCP Sanjeev Arora said prima facie, it appears to be a case of accident. However, basing on allegations of the family members, police are looking into the matter from all angles, he said. The autopsy report is awaited for further investigation, Arora added.
