Jajpur: The Jajpur district administration will demolish the guesthouse from where the body of Haridaspur panchayat village-level worker (VLW) and in-charge panchayat executive officer (PEO) was recovered, will be demolished soon.

Smitarani (31) was found dead at a private guesthouse, owned by the Sarpanch’s husband Rupesh Bhadra on October 16.

The infamous guesthouse has been constructed on Government land illegally by Haridaspur sarpanch’s husband Rupesh Bhadra.

“As per the report of the Tehsildar, accused Rupesh Bhadra’s guest house is situated on Government land and it will be demolished after police investigation,” said Jajpur Collector Ranjan Das.

This apart, the Collector informed that the administration would clamp Sec 144 around the guesthouse to maintain law and order.

Smitarani, a resident of Bhubanpur, had gone to Haridaspur to disburse old age pension to beneficiaries. After disbursing pension in Bhadanga village, she went to the guesthouse in Baligari to have lunch. After a few minutes, she was allegedly found dead in the bedroom of Rupesh in his guesthouse on October 16.

Rupesh has been arrested in connection with the murder case.
