on the issue of Italian hostage crisis, I along with Dr. B.D. Sharma
took the responsibilities as mediators to resolve the hostage crisis
and appealed for peace and ceasefire to both side.
Mr. Sabyasachi, Secretary of newly formed Odisha Maobadi Party, was
maintaining ceasefire from March, 2012 till date and a peace talk
was continuing with Director General of Police by the initiatives of
some noted Gandhians, intellectuals and freedom fighters, on 14th
November, the Odisha Police cold bloodedly murdered 5 (five) persons
from tribal and dalit community branding them as Maoists, who were
all innocent civilians of Kandhamal districts. The police detained
Syamson Mallick of Dahu village and Arun Sunamajhi of Gaheju village
of Brahmnigaon P.S in Kandhamal district from 12th November and
after filling of habeas corpus in Odisha High Court on 22nd November
by their wives, police produced them on same day in a press meet and
described them as surrendered.
spite of fact finding reports and press meet by different civil
society organizations, the Govt. and Police officials are not in a
position to accept their mistakes, rather behaving in more
vindictive and aggressive mindset with the issues of common people.
30th November, 2012, we the various civil rights organizations had
organized a demonstration and dharana in front of Odisha Assembly
with the widows of deceased persons and demanded judiciary enquiry
about the Bhaliaguda Fake encounter. But it is very shameful that a
delegation team was not allowed or called to discuss with you.
However, we forwarded the memorandums to you on e-mail as well as by
December, 2012, police picked up one Kailash Mandal from Mohana area
and detained him without producing in court. On that issue I had
sent SMS to various persons including D.G of Police and demanded
immediate production of Kailash Mandal in nearest court.
a surprising move, on 5th December, 2012, at around 10 am, when my
only son Sangram Mohanty was returning from garage after dealing
with repair works of our trucks, the police in civil dress
forcefully kidnapped him from Payal talkies area, Berhampur. When I
heard the news from my wife I tried to contact Sangram, but failed
due to switch off of his phone. After that I filed an F.I.R at B. N.
Pur police station to ascertain the whereabouts of my son.
afternoon, I knew from various TV channels that my son was arrested
by police from Kamalapur of Mohana block area with arms and
ammunitions and later forwarded to R.Udaygiri court/ Jail at 2
o’clock night. Though our family members and advocate tried to meet
him, police did not allow them at both Mohana Police Station and R.
picking up of my son at Berhampur on 5th December, 2012, and showing
him arrested at Kamalapur under Mohana P.S and forwarding him along
with Kailash Mandal, who was detained by the police since 2nd
December, 2012, with so called seizure of arms and foods materials
is a clear case of concoction and fabrication. And the sections of
IPC under which he was forwarded were awful since my son is an
Engineer, an MBA qualified ‘A’ class contractor and also a student
an objective to malign my political image and my family, the
intelligence bureau and police by the help of some vested interest
media campaigning about my properties which are fabricated and
dangerous steps for democratic body polity. Our family is involved
with the business of transportations since last 33 years as well as
construction works since 4 years. Myself and my family members are
regular income tax payer.
political career, I never advocated in support of any un-democratic
activities, rather support the legitimate and democratic movements
for the interests of common masses. I am surprised that my son is
implicated in such a case which violates the rule of law and human
pre-plan arrest of my son in fabricated cases not only violation of
human rights but also an organized conspiracy against me and my
family to suppress my voice for common people and malign me with a
joint effort by police officials and some vested interests. I also
appeal to stop this conspiracy against me and my family members.
this context, as the Chief of the State as well as head of Home
Department, I appeal you, kindly conduct an impartial inquiry about
the facts stated above and order release of my son from illegal
custody and fabricated case.
