Bhubaneswar, Apr.24( Odisha.in) One of the main accused in Biranchi Das murder case Chagala who had surrendered in a language TV channel odffice in Bhopal on Tuesday was brought to Bhuabneswar by a team of police officials from Orissa.
Chagala was brought on ” transit remand ” by the Orissa police.He was brought by air from Bhopal and reached Bhubaneswar on Thursday forenoon. Immediately he was whisked away by the police team to Infocity police station for intrrogation. He was not allowed to speak to the media.
Later talking to media persons, Police Commissioner, B.B. Behera said that the police is questioning Chagala and would produce him before the court from where they would bring him on remand for detail intrrogation.
Talking to media persons, Behera said that Chagala would be placed for Narco test to reveal the truth behind Biranchi Das morder.
In a Narco test the subject is administered a fixed quantity of Sodium Pentothal or Sodium Amytal which puts him/her in a state of Hypnotism.
Such a test is generally conducted on a suspect who is not coming out with the truth. Once put to this test he is half sleep and answers the questions truthfully.
However this test can not be taken as an evidence in a court of law. But certainly it helps proceed in the right direction and collect evidence which can form the basis for prosecution in a court of law.
It is not possible for the subject to lie when administered the dose. This test is capable of retrieving the facts/things which have been even forgotten by the subject.
Answering to newsmen, Behera said that the police would intrrogate senior I.A.S. Priyabrata Patnaik, actress Leslie Tripathy and sound recording studio owner Jubuli Sunderray if Chagala would reveal anything about their involvement in this sensational case.
Priyabrata Patnaik, Secretary-cum-Commissioner Transport and Commerce Department, Orissa Government and President of State’s most presegious Bhubaneswar Club , denied any link with don Raja Acharya or actress Leslie Tripathy.
He said Biranchi Das was very close to him and he has been shocked at his death. He said that the criminals have made false allegations against him in a section of media and he would take legal actions against them .
Patnaik assured that he would extend all cooperation to the police if the police would intrrogate him at aby point of time.
In the afternoon, both Chagala and another associate of Raja Acharya, Tukuna who was arrested from Cuttack were produced before Arun Kumar Sahoo, S.D.J.M., Bhubaneswar, who granted five days police remand for both of them.
With Chagala and Tukuna under police custody, the Bhubanerswar police is hopeful of arreting Raja Acharya soon and solving the mystery behind Biranchi Das muder and the reasons behind.
Reportedly encounter specialist Himansu Lal’s taking over as the D.C.P., Bhuabneswar have also raised hopes in the minds of the common men of the capital city about improvment of law and order situation and nabbing of the criminals involved in Biranchi’s killing and other organised .
They are hopeful that Lal would succeed in exposing the criminal-police- bureaucrat- politician nexus to light soon.
