Sanjay Das Burma suffers SC setback in poll irregularities case

Sanjay Das Burma

New Delhi/ Bhubaneswar: In a major setback for Brahmagiri BJD MLA Sanjay Das Burma, the Supreme Court today rejected his Special Leave Petition (SLP) seeking annulment in a poll irregularities case filed against him by late Congress leader Lalatendu Bidyadhar Mohapatra aka Lulu Mohapatra.

With this the SC upheld the Orissa High Court’s verdict following which the hearings on the poll irregularities case will continue in the State High Court as usual.

Notably, Lulu Mohapatra had filed a petition in the High Court two years ago alleging Das Burma for being involved in poll irregularities during 2014 general election.

Das Burma moved to the apex court seeking annulment after his plea was rejected by the High Court in July, 2015.
