Hyderabad, March 14: The investigation teams probing the Bitti Mohanty alias Raghav Rajan case have enough documentary evidences to prove that the man whom they have arrested last week from Kerala is indeed the rape convict Bitti Mohanty.

However, as a last resort, investigation teams will conduct a fingerprint identification test on the arrested man to match with those on record for the German tourist's case.

Bitti Mohanty was convicted for raping a German woman tourist in 2006.

Bitti was absconding for more than six years, before he was arrested by Kerala police on March 8. The case is high profile as Bitti is the son of former Odisha DGP BB Mohanty, who helped him to jump parole.

Earlier, Bitti was sentenced to seven years of imprisonment for raping a 26-year-old German tourist in Alwar, Rajasthan. But, he took advantage of his father's position when he was allowed a 15-day parole to meet his ailing mother in 2006.

Bitti jumped parole and was absconding since then. Bitti's father was accused of helping his son jump parole.

The arrested man Raghav Rajan was working with State Bank of Travancore in Kerala. Police arrested him from Kannur, Kerala last week.

Now, documents which police teams have accessed after their investigation in Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh clearly indicates that the arrested man is none-other-than Bitti.

Police officials say during six years of Bitti's hiding, he taught at a school in Puttaparthi, completed an MBA in Kannur, and then got a bank job.

Now, Bitti is taken to Rajasthan, where a fast track court convicted him for rape. His fingerprints will be matched with the person, who raped the German woman and admitted committing the crime.

However, Bitti maintains that he is Raghav Rajan. Bitti created the identity of Raghav to hoodwink police.
