There appears to be no end of trouble for BJD MLA from Tirtol Bijay Shankar Das with his girlfriend and wife-to-be Somalika Dash bringing serious allegations of rape against the legislator. 

Somalika has reportedly sent her complaint letter via post. 

As per media reports, the complaint letter dated May 13 was sent to the district police headquarters. However, the complainant later wrote to Jagatsinghpur police requesting not to take any action in this regard.   

Later even as both Bijay Shankar and Somalika applied for marriage at the Registrar of Marriage office at Jagatsinghpur, the legislator did not turn up.

On June 18, an enraged Somalika approached Jagatsinghpur police and lodged a complaint alleging that the lawmaker was operating sex racket to raise money for election expenses. 

Jagatsinghpur SP on July 4 wrote to the additional DG of police, Crime Branch to pass an order to take up the case by the Crime Branch for a detailed investigation into the allegations of the complainant.   

"The complainant has alleged that the FIR named accused is operating sex racket and running brothel house. As a result of which there is much hue and cry over the issue politically as well as on social media. As the FIR named accused is the sitting MLA of Tirtol Assembly Constituency, it has become a sensitive issue," the Jagatsinghpur SP had written in the letter.

"Under the above circumstances, it is requested that orders may be passed that the investigation of the above noted case may be taken up by CID, CB, Odisha for a detailed investigation to the allegations of the complainant of the case," the SP had added.
