Bhubaneswar: In a significant development in connection with the case of Paralakhemundi Assistant Conservator of Forest (ACF) Saumya Ranjan Mohapatra’s mysterious death, his wife Bidyabharati Panda’s handwritten note has come to fore, in which the woman has mentioned that she hated her husband.
“I had written it after knowing about his extramarital affair to express my sorrow. The note has no relevance with his death,” said Bidyabharati.
“I hate you the most in the world. I hate this man. Even hate combine my name with his. I spoiled my life for all my stupid decisions,” the note read.
Police have already seized the note written in a diary from the ACF’s residence in Paralakhemundi.
Saumya Ranjan was rescued in a half-charred state at his government quarters in Paralakhemundi on July 12. He succumbed to burn injuries while undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Cuttack on July 13.
Even as the police are yet to arrive at any conclusion in the case, shocking revelations by Bidyabharati has made the case murkier.
In an audio clip shared by Bidyabharati, she can be heard asking Saumya Ranjan to give his mobile phone to her so that she could prove his ‘relationship’ with someone. On the other hand, Saumya Ranjan can be heard saying that he has no such relationship while refusing to give his mobile phone to his wife.
Bidyabharati has also accused him of having relationship with ‘other woman’ after their marriage.
“I once saw him receiving a call on his mobile phone from an unknown number. He used earphone for the telephonic conversation. I could hear a woman talking to him during the call and asking him as to why he was not being in touch with her,” said Bidyabharati.
She further said that Saumya Ranjan had once texted ‘I Love You’ to someone.
“Though I wanted to know the truth, he kept changing the password of his mobile phone. He had also deleted his Facebook account and cleared call history and chats on the device,” she said.
Bidyabharati further added that the allegations levelled against her by her in-laws are baseless.
Commenting on the unsigned agreement paper, in which Saumya Ranjan has purportedly declared his wife as the possessor of his property and salary, Bidyabharati said she knows nothing about the document and has never seen it.
“Contrary to the allegation by my in-laws, I never went to the residence of Gajapati DFO after dispute with my husband,” she alleged.
