PARADIP: A Kujang court on Friday issued non-bailable warrants against Managing Director of Orissa Stevedores Ltd (OSL) Mahimananda Mishra and his aide and OSL employee Basant Bal in the murder of Mahendra Swain, manager of Seaways Shipping and Logistics Limited (SSL). 

The JMFC, Digbijay Das, issued the NBW after hearing the plea of Paradip police. The Orissa High Court had earlier rejected the bail plea of Mishra. 

Paradip police which also interrogated Mishra’s wife Mala Mishra last week had reportedly inquired about her husband’s whereabouts. 

Meanwhile, in another development, Susant Sethy, an OSL employee who is also an accused in SSL manager’s murder, was arrested by Paradip police with help of their Delhi counterparts from Indira Gandhi International Airport in the National Capital on Friday.

Jagatsinghpur SP JN Pankaj said, police is hopeful of extracting information about the OSL MD from Sethy.

After his arrest, Sethy was produced in Patiala House Court in Delhi and the judge has allowed Paradip police to bring him on transit remand to Odisha. He will be produced in JMFC Court, Kujang on Saturday during which police will seek his remand to interrogate him in connection with the SSL manager’s murder case.

Earlier, police  had arrested five persons, including three belonging to Jharkhand, in connection with the gunning down of Swain in the port town on October 26, the police said.
