Bhubaneswar, March 28: The sensational Manas Swain murder case was raised in the State Assembly by the opposition Congress in the zero-hour.
Congress Legislator Santosh Singh Saluja said the victim’s mother has alleged the involvement of Minister of State (MoS) for Home Dibya Shankar Mishra in the murder.
“Due to the involvement of a Minister, conducting a fair and unbiased investigation cannot be ensured by any state agency,” he added.
He demanded to hand over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for an unbiased probe.
“This case is similar to the Mamita Meher murder case. Both the murder cases are linked to sex scandals and in both cases Minister Dibya Shankar Mishra’s name has surfaced. Despite this, his name is not included in the investigation in any of the two cases,” he added.
