BHUBANESWAR: More than a year after a liquor shop salesman in Patrapada was shot dead, prime accused in the case Manoj Dalei alias Dora surrendered before the court of Khurda SDJM  here on Thursday.

Police are suspecting his involvement in another murder case registered under Jatni police limits last year. While Dora was remanded in judicial custody, the Commissionerate Police would seek his remand for further investigation in both the murder cases.

On June 18 last year, Dora had shot at Rakesh Nayak alias Raka after an altercation over purchase of liquor. While Raka died on the spot, Dora and three of his accomplices fled in a car. One month after the incident, the Commissionerate Police had arrested a 23-year-old engineering graduate G Vishnu Prasad, who was accompanying Dora on the fateful day.

After the incident, the accused trio fled from the spot and later went in different directions. Vishnu, during his interrogation, had revealed that Dora had moved out of the State fearing arrest. Multiple police teams were formed to nab Dora but he managed to give police the slip during this period.
