RAYAGADA: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is probing into the murder of Sikhya Sahayak Itishree Pradhan, quizzed president of All Odisha Sikhya Sahayak Sangha Sunil Kumar Pradhan on Monday.

The CBI DSP, MK Pathak, arrived here on Sunday to probe into the murder case. Pradhan was the district president of the Sangha during the murder and Itishree had reportedly shared her problems with him. The CBI team also collected some papers from district court.

Two years have passed since the teacher of Tikiri Project Primary School was set on fire, the miscreants who committed the ghastly crime are yet to be put behind bars.

CBI has so far interrogated more than in the course of its inquiry into the case. Hailing from Delang in Puri district, Itishree was posted as a teacher at Tikiri. Since her joining, she had complained of being tortured by the then SI of Schools Netrananda Dandasena to police and district administration.

While no action was taken on her complaints, Itishree was set on fire by unidentified miscreants in the school hostel on October 27, 2013. She died at a private hospital in Visakhapatnam on November 1.
