SDJM court upholds order on shifting of D-brothers

Cuttack: The Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate (SDJM) court here Thursday upheld its previous order on the shifting of notorious Dhalasamant brothers (D-brothers) from the Choudwar Circle Jail.

Following a directive from the Orissa High Court to reconsider the order, the Cuttack SDJM court reviewed its earlier order in which it had asked jail officials in March to shift Sushant Dhalasamant and Sushil Dhalasamant to Jharpada jail in Bhubaneswar and Balasore jail, respectively.

The high court had scrapped the SDJM court order on shifting of the criminal siblings while hearing a petition filed by the D-brothers and asked the lower court to reconsider the case.

Notably, on March 1, the Commissionerate of Police had moved the court seeking permission to shift the duo from the Choudwar Circle Jail to other jails in the State for security reasons.
