Pradeep Panigrahy’s bail plea rejected

Bhubaneswar: The Gopalpur MLA Pradeep Panigrahy’s bail plea was rejected by the Additional District Judge here on Monday.

Pradeep Panigrahy, who was sent in judicial custody for 14 days by the order of the SDJM’s court, has moved the Khurda District and Sessions Court seeking bail.

Reports said the court turned down the MLA’s plea this evening.

Worthwhile to mention here that the former Minister is facing charges of cheating, forgery and conspiracy. Panigrahy was nabbed by the Crime Branch on December 4.
