Odisha businessman abducted in Jharkhand, mother seeks CM’s intervention


Bhubaneswar: The mother of a Bhubaneswar-based vet-cum-businessman who was kidnapped in Jharkhand on August 23 sought the intervention of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to get her son back.

Prior to meeting the CM, the woman, talking to OTV, said, “I request the government to bring back my son, I will meet the Chief Minister and urge him to take urgent action on it.”

She added that Jharkhand police had information about the abduction at around 10 pm on August 23. The police had also confirmed about finding the car of her son and said it to be a case of abduction.

Later in the day, she went to Naveen Nivas to meet the Chief Minister but in absence of the latter submitted her complaint to an official.

“I was expecting to meet the Chief Minister but as he was not there an official received my complaint; he has informed about it to Bhubaneswar DCP and asked me to meet him,” said the woman to mediapersons, after coming out of Naveen Nivas.

According to sources, Dr Manas Ranjan Das, a veterinary doctor of Bhubaneswar, was abducted when he was on way to his hometown from Hajipur in Bihar’s Vaishali district, where he runs a poultry feed processing unit.

Giridih police in Jharkhand had found a Mercedes car, bearing registration number OR-09P/9999, from a roadside in Dumri. After finding out that the car belongs to Das, police contacted his wife Dolly Dutta, who along with some family members left for Giridh and registered an abduction case at Dumri police station.

A special task force has been formed by Giridh police to raid the hideouts of criminals in Bihar and Odisha.
