Flyover Collapse: 2 Panda Infra Directors move HC seeking anticipatory bail


Bhubaneswar: A few hours after the Commissionerate police issued look-out circulars (LOC) at all ports, airports and exit points of the country against two absconding directors of Construction Company Panda Infra, Sujata Panda and Santosh Panda, the duo moved the High Court seeking anticipatory bail here on Wednesday.

Sources said that the LOC was issued against the two Directors of Panda Infra suspecting them of fleeing the country after police initiated a probe against them in connection with the under-construction flyover collapse near Bomikhal in Bhubaneswar on Sunday, which left a man dead and 12 others injured.

Earlier today, the Commisionerate Police had informed all the security agencies along with appraising the Home Ministry to ensure the duo doesn’t escape the country.
