Police back with Bitti in Kerala after collecting evidence

Bitti Mohanty
Kannur, March 19: Bitti Mohanty, who is accused of raping a German woman in 2006, has returned to Kerala. The Kerala police have collected enough evidence to establish that he is not Raghav Rajan, the name he took on after jumping parole.

An investigation team had taken Bitti to Rajasthan to get evidence to establish his real identity. They reached Kannur around 3: 30 am on Monday.

Deputy superintendent of police S.K. Sudarshan, the head of the 20-member investigation team, said the 'police have enough evidence to disprove the claim of Bitti that he is Raghav Rajan, a native of Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh'.

According to reports, Sudarshan hinted at the possibility of police seeking court's permission to conduct a DNA test to ascertain his identity.

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. Police sources informed that a 6 member team has taken the accused to Jaipur. The investigation is being led by Taliparamba circle inspector A V John. 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.
