Bhubaneswar: The High Court on Tuesday granted interim relief to Paralakhemundi MLA K Surya Rao and BJP leader K Ravana both accused involved in the tragic Parala suicide cases.
According to information, the court has deferred their anticipatory bail and stipulated the next hearing on December 16.
Notably, Rao had moved the High Court seeking anticipatory bail on August 30 in connection with the suicide of Paralakhemundi Royal Palace manager Anang Manjari Patra and her three other siblings.
The suicide notes that were found from the possession of Ananga and her three siblings had some critical indication about the involvement of both Surya Rao and Ravana for abetting in their suicide.
Ananga who had blamed the MLA and some others for her suicide said that she and her other siblings had been a victim of conspiracy hatched by some local vested interests and insisted that she was innocent all the way.
It is to be recalled here that Ananga and her two brothers Tulu Paptra and Santosh Patra along with another sister Bijaylaxmi were found dead under mysteriously condition in the locked house in Jangam sahi in Paralakhemundi. Ananga and her two brothers were overseeing works at the royal palace of the king Gajpati Gopinath Deb.
Allegations of forcing the king to house arrest and misappropriation of royal properties came to limelight after news broadcast on the issue. The case raised huge outcry as pressure began to pile on them. After the intervention of district administration the king was freed from their alleged possession to Chennai based Apollo Hospital. Ananga who was in the front line of fire kept dismissing reports of any misuse of power and torture to king. After a week of the issue all four of them, were found dead in their4 house. The case has been handed over to a SIT of Crime Branch.
