Cuttack: In a fresh development in mysterious death of Paralakhemundi Assistant Conservator of Forest (ACF) Saumya Ranjan Mohapatra, his family members today demanded lie detector test on his wife and cook as well Gajapati DFO.
The deceased OFS Officer’s father Abhiram Mohapatra today met DGP Abhay at Police headquarters here demanding appropriate probe into alleged murder case.
He urged the DGP to conduct polygraph test on his daughter-in-law Bidyabharati Panda, Gajapati DFO Sangram Keshari Behera and the ACF’s cook to crack the case.
Leveling fresh allegation against Garabandha IIC Mamata Panda, who is the sister-in-law of Bidyabharati, Mohapatra also questioned the decision of shifting his son from Berhampur to Cuttack and the reason behind the IIC’s obstructing the ambulance carrying the official midway for an hour leading to deterioration of his health condition.
“Garabandha IIC Mamata Panda should be brought under scanner as she had stopped the ambulance in which Saumya Ranjan was being shifted to Cuttack at a locality that was not under jurisdiction of Garabandha, Mohapatra told reporters after meeting with the DGP”
Meanwhile, the Paralakhemundi Police has already initiated probe into the case following allegations by deceased ACF’s family against wife, Gajapati DFO and cook.
Yesterday, a six-member team of Paralakhemundi Police visited residence of Abhiram Mohapatra in Balasore district to question the family members in connection with the case. The team also grilled wife Bidyabharati at her residence in Mayurbhanj district.
The family of the deceased ACF alleged that their daughter-in-law, Gajapati DFO and cook were behind the death mystery terming the incident as ‘murder’.
His father alleged that it was a pre-planned murder over extramarital affair and the trio killed his son.
