BHUBANESWAR: BJP spokesperson Golak Mohapatra’s arrest possibility is on the rise. Odisha police has issued notice him to appear before the investigating officer today on alleged link with accused of Chhatrapur councilor Laxmidutta Pradhan’s murder.
However, Mohapatra has refuted the allegations of having links with the two conspirators arrested in connection with the murder of Chhatrapur councilor Laxmidutta Pradhan. Earlier, in several press meets Mohapatra said that as he is the BJP observer for Ganjam district many people contact him on phone and he does not know each one of them.
Mohapatra alleged that it is a conspiracy against him and demanded an impartial probe. He even said that the police have violated the law by releasing the video footage of the arrested accused and demanded that the CBI or a monitoring committee constituted by the Orissa High Court should investigate the case.
Ruling Biju Janata Dal demands his arrest.
Golak Mohapatra has been accusing Ganjam SP earlier through press conferences fearing that he is dragged with political grudge. Even, he has asked Ganjam SP to quit police job and join politics instead of playing BJD agent.
In the meanwhile, another BJP spokesperson Dilip Mohanty claimed, scared of the growing popularity of BJP, the BJD has planned a conspiracy. He even alleged the BJD of misusing the government machinery.
A BJP delegation on Monday met governor S.C. Jamir and accused Ganjam police chief Ashish Singh of acting like a “BJD agent”. BJP leader Pitambar Acharya said: “We do not expect a fair probe from the Ganjam SP. Whatever facts police gathers during the course of investigation should be handed over to the court. It should not become public in any way.”
BJP landed in trouble after accused Krusha Chandra Nayak and his associate, N Duryodhan Reddy, who were arrested by the police on October 28, said they were in constant touch with Ganjam’s BJP in-charge and spokesperson Golak Mohapatra.
Ganjam police has leaked video containing accused statements and call records few mobile numbers.
