Bhubaneswar: Dinamani Barik, the son-in-law of Champua MLA Sanatan Mahakud appeared before Mahila Police on Thursday in connection with the controversy surrounding Kabita Mahakud, who is claiming to be the daughter-in-law of the legislator.
The Commissionerate police had sent a notice to Barik to appear before the police and keep his side.
Meanwhile, the Police commissioner has said that while the investigations are on, police will ensure that all the concerned parties are interrogated and impartiality is maintained in the investigations.
Yesterday, Sanatan Mahakud was interrogated by the police.
Notably, Kabita had filed a case of physical and mental harassment against the Champua MLA in Bhubaneswar on March 1. A case under Sections 498 A, 341, 294 and 34 of the IPC was registered at the Mahila Police Station.
The complainant had alleged that she had tied the knot with the MLA’s eldest son, Pankaj in 2012 after separating from her first husband Debasis Mahakud. The couple was living in Motu in Malkangiri district after marriage.
She alleged that since Sanatan was not in favour of her marriage with Pankaj, he forcibly took his son to Champua in August 2015 and had kept him confined there since then.
