HC directs for case registration against MLA Bijaya Shankar Das over girlfriend Somalika’s complaint

Cuttack: The Orissa High Court has directed the Jagatsinghpur police station IIC to register a case against Tirtol MLA Bijaya Shankar Das on the basis of a complaint lodged by his girlfriend Somalika Das.

Alleging police inaction, Somalika had moved the High Court seeking registration of case against the legislator.

Hearing her petition, a single bench of Justice SK Panigrahi issued the directive to the IIC. The petitioner has been asked to submit a certified copy of the High Court’s order and a fresh complaint to the police official.

She had mentioned in her petition that police was not registering case against the MLA despite filing of an FIR on May 13, 2022.

After the High Court’s order, Somalika approached the IIC with a written complaint while the latter has assured her of registration of case.

Notably, Somalika had levelled a serious allegation against the legislator accusing him of not turning up for marriage at a court in Jagatsinghpur even as the two had applied for marriage registration at the office of the sub-registrar in the district.

She had further accused him of running a sex racket. She alleged that the MLA engaged innocent girls in the illegal activity. The money collected through the sex racket was used by the MLA for election-related expenses, she said.
