Orissa HC orders CBI probe into forging court order
Sambalpur, Aug 25 (UNI) The Orissa High Court has ordered a CBI inquiry into the release of three accused involved in a murder case by submitting forged court orders.
The three accused were involved in the murder of Dr Bikram Sahu, a doctor in Gosala area under Burla Police station 20 km from here near his clinic on July 3 last year, by kiran Behera and his brothers using hired killers.
Both Behera and Sahu families of Lapanga were allegedly involved in series of murder cases.
Kiran Behera, also a Sarapancha of Lapanga Gram Panchayat, and his two brothers-Basanta and Narottama were absconding after the crime. Police said Kiran had engaged two veteran criminals Sadananda Luha and Sukhanjit Mitra to eliminate Dr Bikram Sahu The sarpanch on August 4 last had produced a bail order from Orissa high court and got himself released from Sambalpur court along with his two other brothers. He had availed the bail fraudulently and took over the charge of Sarapanch from the Naib-Sarapanch.
Again on last Thursday, he produced another bail order from Orissa High Court for release of Sukhanjit Mitra, another accused in the murder case.
The judge, however, suspected some foul play on the order as the size of the High Court seal was somewhat abnormal and signature of the Justice A S Naidu was not accurate. On verification, by a fax message, the Judge came to know that the bail order had been forged by the accused.
The Sambalpur District court sources here today said the High Court on being informed about the matter, had ordered a CBI inquiry into the incident.
