Bhubaneswar: A day after Mayor Anant Jena filed defamation law suit of Rs 1 crore against sex tape allegedly featuring him which youth Congress students say led to B Tech student Ashutosh Mohanty or Rishi’s death, his mother has demanded for probe into the matter today.
“Whoever has killed my son should be punished by law. There should be fresh probe into the incident,” Rishi’s mother Pritirani Mohanty said.
Mayor Jena is a family friend being her brother’s friend she confirmed.
Meanwhile, youth Congress leader Itish Pradhan who first brought the allegations against the Mayor before media today said that if the Mayor is not present in the video he should welcome investigation. “We brought the allegation of the sex scandal because we found the person in the video completely similar to the Mayor. We also want probe into Rishi’s death,” he said. “It was said that Rishi had consumed 8 packets of drugs. But who provided him with this and why was the peddler not arrested then? We want investigation into the matter,” he said.
