Lady blackmailer Archana Nag was also blackmailing a political leader in Nayagarh, who is a businessman as well. This startling revelation, mentioned in the charge sheet submitted by the Enforcement Directorate ( ED ) before the District and Sessions Judge Court in Bhubaneswar, has raised many eyebrows and left many speculating about who is this leader. 

In the charge sheet, it is mentioned that Archana was blackmailing film producer Akshay Parija with the help of her associate Shraddhanjali. The charge sheet has also mentioned about Archana blackmailing a Nayagarh-based political leader and businessman. 

Now the question is who is this political leader? 

“The ED should reveal the name of Nayagarh leader who was honey-trapped by Archana. People must know him who has brought disgrace to Nayagarh,” said Nayagarh District Congress President Ranjit Dash. 

In his reaction, State secretary of BJP Krushak Morcha, Santosh Pradhan said, “In past, there were many people who had brought disgrace to Nayagarh.  The fresh revelation has hurt us deeply. The name of the leader and businessman should be revealed without further delay.”

The ED has also mentioned in the charge sheet that Archana and Shraddhanjali were blackmailing 
biggies including political leaders and businessmen. 

The ED also suspects that Archana’s money-extorting business may have stricken its root in foreign countries as well. This is why the ED has sought permission from the court to investigate more into the case. It has also sought the court’s permission to confiscate the seized properties of the accused.
