Jaipur, Aug 20 (Odisha.in) A court in Rajasthan Monday rejected a bail petition filed by Orissa’s director general of police (Home guards) B.B.Mohanty to convert a non bailable arrest warrant against him into a bailable one.
Mohanty’s son Bitti was convicted of raping a 26-year-old German woman in March 2006. Bitti who was serving seven-year sentence in a Jaipur jail has absconded after coming out of the prison on a 15 days pay roll on November 20.
A non bailable warrant was issued against senior Mohanty for helping his son. Mohanty had petitioned the court to convert the non-bailable warrant against him into a bailable one.
The court of the additional chief judicial magistrate here said that he had been given enough opportunity in the past to defend himself. In spite of Mohanty being a senior police official he was neither helping nor cooperating with the Rajasthan police in investigations.
