Bhubaneswar: The Crime Branch of Odisha Police, which is probing the death of motivational speaker and social activist, Aditya Dash, is likely to conduct polygraph test on a few persons linked to the case.

A senior official of the three-member special team of the Crime Branch informed that the lie detection test may be conducted on the suspects to establish the truth.

Besides, as a part of its investigation into Aditya Dash death case, the Crime Branch team may once again interrogate Aditya's wife and his friends Bikash, Pappu and Pritam.

Earlier on July 30, the Director General of Odisha Police had ordered the State Crime Branch to take over the investigation of Aditya Dash's death case.

A three-member special team of the Crime Branch has already questioned Aditya's wife Bidyashree and his parents. However, the investigation agency is yet to establish the reason behind the activist's death.

Aditya’s mutilated body was found on railway tracks near Lingaraj Temple Road railway station in Bhubaneswar on July 7. Bhubaneswar GRP was investigating the case prior to its handover to Crime Branch.
