Palace staffers’ suicides: Parla MLA approaches HC for anticipatory bail

Bhubaneswar, Aug 30: Paralakhemundi MLA K Surya Rao, accused of abetting the suicides of former Parala king’s former manager Anag Manjari Patra and her three siblings, approached the Orissa High Court seeking pre-arrest bail on Monday.

The MLA moved the HC at a time when the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of CBI intensified its probe into the quadruple deaths.

Anang Manjari in her suicide note blamed the MLA and some others for her suicide and the death of her three siblings and insisted she was innocent.

Her family members have been alleging that she and her siblings became victims of a conspiracy, engineered by some vested interests.

Meanwhile, sources said the Gajapati police reportedly booked the MLA on charges of abetment to suicide after the Amulya Patra, elder brother of Anang lodged an FIR at Paralakhemundi police station.

Some of the others against whom the FIR was lodged include ruling BJD's former Gajapati district president Basant Das, Parala town Congress president Basant Panda and Congress worker Sudhir Mohapatra, sources added.
