The Human Rights Protection Cell (HRPC) officials on Wednesday raided the house of former minister Raghunath Mohanty at Amarda Road in connection with his daughter-in-law Barsa Swony Choudhury dowry torture case.

They, however, had to return empty handed as none was present except a cook. Accompanied by Barsa Swony’s uncle, the team led by DSP Subal Kar recorded the statements of the cook and a few neighbours.

The HRPC officials later appealed the sub-divisional judicial magistrate to allow them to apprehend lady accused persons after sunset, which the court is learnt to have allowed. Sources said apart from the minister, his wife Pritilata, daughter Rupashree and son-in-law Suvendu Madhuala were accused in the case.  

Meanwhile, all eyes are now on Rajashree’s bail plea which is likely to be heard on Thursday. He was remanded in judicial custody since Monday. 

Meanwhile, Barsa had reiterated her demand to arrest all the accused persons immediately.
