Dharmasala, Feb 7: Jajpur district administration on Friday demolished ‘Rangasala’ – the unauthorised guest house where the lady panchayat extension officer (PEO) Smitarani Biswal died under suspicious circumstances last year.
The guest house was constructed on a government land at Baligari under Dharmasala tehsil.
The demolition process was conducted in presence of district sub-collector and local tehsildar.
The state government had asked Jajpur collector Ranjan Das to demolish the unauthorised building.
The collector had sought necessary clarification from the revenue department following proposals to use the building as a public library, orphanage or old-age home.
However, the department said there was no provision for alternative use of such unauthorised constructions.
