Bhubaneswar: Odisha Lokadala on Monday demanded the arrested of Odisha BJP spokesperson Golak Mohapatra alleging his link with the murder of Chhatrapur Councillor Laxmidutta Pradhan.
A group of Odisha Lokadala party workers under the leadership of party president Diptiranjan Mohanty staged a demonstration in-front of Bhubaneswar DCP office here and demanded the arrest of the BJP leader.
The political outfit said that Mohapatra’s Call Details Record (CDR), which was shown by the media yesterday, is enough to ascertain his link with the Chhatrapur BJD councilor’s murder case.
Diptiranjan Mohanty claimed that the BJP leader, as per the CDR, had often spoken with Krushna Chandra Nayak, one of the two conspirators arrested in connection with heinous crime. Therefore, police should arrest him immediately.
Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had inducted Nayak, the former CPI MLA candidate from Chhatrapur, into the saffron party fold. He was helped by the BJP leader to escape soon after the murder which Krushna Chandra Nayak had confessed before the police, the Odisha Lokadala president added.
