Sex slur against Mayor: BJP to stage demo at 12 places today

Bhubaneswar: Demanding dismissal of city Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena for his alleged involvement in a sex scandal video and murder of engineering student Asutosh Mohanty alias Rishi, the BJP will stage demonstration at eight places across the capital today.

At a Press meet here on Friday, the party leaders also alleged that while the Mayor is involved in the murder of the engineering student, the Commissionerate Police under the influence of Jena have remained silent over the issue after registering an unnatural death case.

The party leaders sought an answer from the cops as to who was the investigative officer of the unnatural death case? What is status of the final report? Where are the seized mobile and laptop? And why Sheikh Mumtaz, who was supplying drugs to Rishi, is not arrested yet?

BJP state vice-president Sameer Mohanty demanded that the cops release the viscera report and case diary of the matter along with a report after scanning the audio of the sex video clip within 24 hours. The saffron leaders further demanded that the Chief Minister dismiss the mayor to ensure an impartial probe into the incident.

The BJP would resort to an indefinite stir in front of the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) office from Monday, warned party district president Harekrushna Khuntia.
