Orissa Home Guards DGP Mohanty goes on medical leave to avoid arrest

Orissa Home Guard DGP B B Mohanty went on medical leave on Monday to evade arrest by a Rajasthan Police team.

Cuttack, May 28 : Orissa Home Guard DGP B B Mohanty went on medical leave on Monday to evade arrest by a Rajasthan Police team.

Mohanty is accused of helping his son Biti Mohanty, convicted of raping a German scholar in Alwar, jump parole.

A day after Rajasthan Police were rapped by a Jaipur court, the state government decided to send a police team to Cuttack to bring Mohanty to Jaipur for interrogation.

Last Thursday, the court in Jaipur had rejected Rajasthan Police's excuse of not having a court warrant to arrest Mohanty, saying that police had the means to proceed with an arrest without a warrant.

Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Rajendra Bansal also rejected Rajasthan Police's plea to issue a non-bailable warrant against Mohanty, saying the latter was free to arrest Mohanty.

"We have come here to arrest B B Mohanty as per the court directions. We will take him to Rajasthan," said Deputy Superintendent of Police, Jaipur, Mumkund Bihari.

For almost six months now, this case has been an embarrassment for the Rajasthan Government. Not only did Biti, convicted by a fast-track court for rape, jump bail and disappear, the senior Mohanty also sees the Jaipur court's order as a breather.

Meanwhile, Mohanty's lawyer has filed anticipatory bail plea in the Jaipur sessions court. The hearing is scheduled for May 30.

Earlier, Orissa DGP Amranand Patnaik said that he has discussed the issue with his Rajasthan counterpart MS Gill.

Asked why the Orissa cops were not cooperating with their Rajasthan counterparts in the case, Patnaik said his force would extend all possible help within the law to interrogate Mohanty.
