DIG (northern range) Deepak Kumar said an FIR was registered at 12.50 am on October 13 and a copy was handed over to the victim’s family.
Bijoy Mohapatra said all attempts are being made to derail the investigation ostensibly to absolve Minister of State for Home Dibya Shankar Mishra from the crime.
Mishra who was part of the Congress team which visited Jharni, said that the victim’s mother has told him to fight for her daughter.
State BJP president Samir Mohanty asked Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to clarify to the people whether the investigation of the case will be handed over to CBI.
Dubbing the OSSC as a house of corruption, Mohapatra said the arrest of Biranchi Narayan Sahoo, private secretary to the member of the commission, is not enough.
