CM orders crime branch probe into Salepur murder case

Kendrapada: Even after 36 hours, the police are yet to arrest the man behind the Salepur block youth BJD President Chittaranjan Mohanty’s murder on Wednesday night. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik ordered a crime branch probe into the matter on Thursday.

Critically injured Mohanty died on his way to hospital after some miscreants allegedly hurled bombs at his Salepur residence. Following his death a case has been filed in Salepur police station in this regard.

ADG crime branch Bijay Mishra said a case was filed and an independent team would take up the case.

A rally carrying Chittaranjan’s body was taken out from SCB medical in Cuttack to Salepur BJD office yesterday. Later, his body was taken to his village Bandhakatia of Nischintakoili block where he was cremated.
