Job Scam: Orissa HC Grants Conditional Bail To Gopalpur MLA Pradeep Panigrahi
Cuttack: The Orissa High Court (HC) today granted bail to Gopalpur MLA and former BJD leader Pradeep Panigrahi in a job fraud case.
The HC granted conditional bail to the legislator in connection with the Tata Motors job fraud case registered at Golanthara police station in Ganjam district.
A total of six cases are pending against Panigrahi and the court has granted him bail in all the cases, paving the way for his release from Jharpada Special Jail.
