Balangir: The Balangir Additional District and Sessions Court on Friday rejected the bail plea of Punjilal Meher, the mastermind of sensational Patnagarh parcel bomb explosion that killed newly married Soumya Sekhar Sahu, his grandmother Jemamani and left his wife Rimarani grievously wounded in burn injuries on February 23.
Yesterday, the court completed its hearing on the bail plea of Punjilal and reserved its verdict. However, the lawyer of the accused said today that his client will move to the higher court for justice.
Punjilal was arrested by the Crime Branch after marathon interrogation in connection to the explosion. He had planned the crime to take revenge against Soumya’s mother Sanjukta Sahu, who was promoted to the post of Principal of Jyoti Vikas Junior College in Bhainsa, where he was teaching English.
Punjilal has been lodged in Patnagarh Sub-Jail.
Currently, Rimarani is living at the house of her in-laws in Patnagarh after being discharged from the SCB Hospital in Cuttack on April 12.
