Balasore Girl ‘Murdered’ In Bhubaneswar, Body Dumped In Ganjam; Couple Arrested

Berhampur: A couple from Bhubaneswar was arrested on Monday on the charges of killing a girl, who worked as a domestic help at their residence in the capital city, and disposing her body in Ganjam district.

Briefing the media at a presser, Ganjam SP Brijesh Ray said that the cops have successfully cracked the case by arresting two persons for their involvement in the murder of the girl who hailed from Balasore.

The accused have been identified as Manas Paikaray and his wife Sarojini.

Earlier, the body of the domestic help was recovered from Bhusundapal area under Jagannath Prasad Police limits on December 2, 2020.

Despite several attempts, the identity of the deceased girl could not be ascertained for a long period. However, recently the cops got a phone number and learnt that the girl was working in Bhubaneswar.

“We had formed special teams and lot of effort went into to ascertain the identity of the deceased girl. Later, we got some leads and contacted the father of the deceased who identified the body,” said Ray.

Ray further said the girl died after she was thrashed by her employer in Bhubaneswar. The girl was brutally beaten up for not doing household chores properly.

“After the death of the girl, the couple hired an Ola cab and disposed the body in Ganjam district to avoid suspicion,” Ray added.

Bhubaneswar: Ahead of the festive season, the Special Task Force (STF) of the Odisha Police Crime Branch busted an illegal weapon-supply racket on Friday by arresting two dealers from the outskirts of Bhubaneswar.

Eight firearms including two pistols, five revolvers (country-made) and a rifle and 12 rounds of live ammunition were seized from the two accused- Rakesh Jena and Bikash Behera.

While addressing a presser, Crime Branch ADG, Soumendra Priyadarshi today said both the arms dealers were arrested following raids at Chandaka and nearby areas on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar.

“It is a major success for STF as we have managed to nab the arms dealers who used to supply the weapons to the criminals,” said Priyadarshi.

According to Priyadarshi, illegal firearms are mostly smuggled from Bihar and others are manufactured locally. The cost of a mauser ranges between Rs 30,000 to Rs 35,000 and efforts are on to ascertain the source of supply of the weapons, the senior official said.

“We will bring both the accused on remand so that more information regarding the illegal arms trade can be elicited,” Priyadarshi added.

On September 25, the STF had seized one 9 MM pistol, one magazine and four rounds of live ammunitions near Kalpana square in Bhubaneswar. Three criminals were arrested in this connection after a case was registered at Badgada Police Station in Bhubaneswar.

Bhubaneswar Bank Robberies: Accused Had Suffered Losses During Lockdown , Used Toy Gun For Crime

Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police on Monday claimed breakthrough in the twin bank loot incidents by nabbing the accused involved in the crime. The accused has been identified as Soumya Ranjan Jena.

At a presser, Police Commissioner Sudhanshu Sarangi today informed that the accused had suffered huge losses during the lockdown and committed the offence only to repay the loan which he had taken from banks.

The accused used a toy gun (air gun) to commit the crime after watching several videos on Youtube on how to loot banks, Sarangi informed.

The accused had allegedly looted nearly Rs 12 lakh from from the Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) near Infocity area on September 7 and the Bank of India’s (BOI) Barimunda branch in Mancheswar area on September 28.

Interestingly, Jena has accounts in both the banks and had taken loan of nearly Rs 19 lakh and had an outstanding of Rs 6 lakh.

According to Police, Jena had completed his +2 in Commerce stream and had started a business by taking loans. Though he was doing a brisk business with a turnover of Rs 9 to 10 lakh, his business was badly hit during the COVID-19 lockdown.

With no source of income, Jena started facing problems in repaying the loan amount. It was then when he decided to repay the loan by committing bank dacoity and chose the two banks where he had accounts, Sarangi said.

“It was completely a blank case as usually criminals from outside State are involved in such bank loot incidents. In both the incidents, there was only one accused who came in black dress, helmet, mask and gloves. Moreover, the accused was also communicating in Odia which is usually not in the cases when criminals from outside the State are involved in such crime incidents,” said Sarangi.

Sarangi further informed that out of the Rs 12.34 lakh which was robbed from both the banks, nearly Rs 10 lakh has been recovered from the accused.

“The accused had repaid only Rs 60,000 to the banks against the loan amount to avoid suspicion,” the Police Commissioner added.
