Barabati Land Grab: Ashirbad Behera Gets Clean Chit From CBI
Bhubaneswar: Former secretary of Odisha Olympic Association (OAA) Ashirbad Behera on Monday got a clean chit from the Centra Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with Barabati stadium land grabbing case.
The central agency has reportedly filed its final report in the Supreme Court in connection with the investigation into the alleged land grab case stating that nothing substantial was found in the case.
It further said that there was no wrongdoing on part of the then secretary of OOA or the INCON Associates, a private firm having his son and son-in-law as partners, for management of the wedding hall at the Barabati.
Responding to the same, Behera said, “Many people were thinking that I was involved in irregularities, but finally, truth wins.”
Earlier, a case was registered under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 120 (b) and 420 against Behera, M/s Incon Associates and unknown officials of OOA for ‘illegal construction’ of a kalyan mandap and 23 shops by OOA on government land.
