PARADIP: Police on Thursday raided the offices of Orissa Stevedores Ltd (OSL) in Paradip and Cuttack, besides houses of the company’s Managing Director Mahimananda Mishra, Executive Director Basant Bal and two other officials in Puri, Paradip, Cuttack and Kendrapara in connection with the murder of Seaways Group  manager, Mahendra Swain. Five police teams had raided 10 locations by the evening. Police also froze the OSL’s bank accounts.

OSL Managing Director, Mishra and the other officials are allegedly the prime suspects in the murder case. Police also interrogated the employees of OSL to know the whereabouts of Mishra and others.
Jagatisnghpur SP, JN Pankaj said the raids will continue.  Earlier, police had issued a look-out circular against Mishra.
Last week, Paradip Police questioned four dumper owners after it received a letter from Dumper Owner’s Association which alleged that attempts by Swain to unsuccessfully induct new dumpers for transportation may have caused acrimony leading to the October 26 murder.
