Bhubaneswar: Commissionerate Police on Friday shifted senior gangster Sushant Dhala Samanta to Bolangir jail amid tight security arrangements as a preventive measure to break D-brothers’ crime syndicate operating from behind bars.
The Commissionerate Police had appealed the Cuttack judicial magistrate first class (JMFC) court here to allow relocating the dreaded gangster.
The decision comes after the court on Thursday allowed the police to shift the gangster from Jharpara jail.
Earlier, Sushant was shifted from Chowdwar jail to Jharpara due to security reasons as he was lodged along with his brother Sushil Dhala Samanta in the same jail.
The move has come as a huge relief for the police and jail department officials.
