BJP leader Ashok Sahu has been hospitalised after his health condition deteriorated. He was admitted to the SCB Medical at Cuttack on Sunday after he developed problems in his respiratory system.

He was on a  fast unto death in front of Collectorate since Friday protesting against failure of police in arresting the killers of Swami Laxmananda Saraswati.

Sahu said since no action was initiated on the letter submitted to the Chief Minister in this regard on August 15, he started the protest.

He also alleged that the Chief Minister had failed to keep his promise to arrest the assailants and conspirators involved in the murder. The Chief Minister had given the assurance in the wake of the bandh called by the Swami Laxmananda Saraswati Shradhanjali Samiti in 2008. 

Meanwhile, the Campaign Against Fabricated Cases (CAFC) has demanded release of all innocents arrested for their alleged involvement in the murder four and a half years back.

Though Maoists claimed that they had killed the seer, the State crime branch arrested seven persons in connection with the case.
