Bitti Mohanty
Bhubaneswar, March 15, 2013: Kerala police who are investigating rape convict Bitii Mohanty's case, have found that his B.Tech certificate from Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) in Bhubaneswar in the name of Raghav Rajan was forged.

"The B.Tech degree certificate in the name of Raghav Rajan is forged. The same was issued in the name of Bitti," said Josi Joesph, an inspector-rank officer leading the Kerala police team.

The police team have been here to verify documents. "We are convinced that all his certificates in the name of Raghav Rajan are forged," Jose Joseph, who is leading the police team was quoted as saying.

Bitti Mohanty was taken to Jaipur on March 12 to confirm his identity as he claims to be Raghav Rajan. He was arrested in Kerala last week after 7 years. He had jumped parole while serving his term in prison at Alwar, Rajasthan.

Bitti had been working with the bank for seven months and claimed to hold an MBA degree from Kannur University, a police official said.

Bitti is the son of former Odisha DGP BB Mohanty, who helped him jump parole. Earlier, Bitti was sentenced to seven years of imprisonment for raping a 26-year-old German tourist in Alwar, Rajasthan. 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 also accused of helping his son jump parole. The former Odisha DGP was suspended and arrested on the charge of helping and hiding his son. But he was later reinstated in service and retired last year.
