Ex-CMC corporator Ranjita Biswal arrested again
Cuttack: Former Corporator of Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) Ranjita Biswal, who was out on bail, was arrested again by Commissionerate Police on Wednesday. A special squad of the Commissionerate Police arrested Ranjita and seized two guns from her possession.
Cuttack DCP Akhileswar Singh said the cops had on Tuesday arrested an associate of the D-brothers and seized a gun from him. Based on information obtained during his interrogation, the police raided the ex-Corporator’s house on Wednesday and recovered two guns before arresting her.
The Dhala Samant brothers had hatched a plan to commit a crime during the upcoming elections, he added.
Ranjita was arrested by the Commissionerate Police in March last year on charges of supplying firearms to contract killers on instruction from gangster siblings Sushant and Sushil Dhala Samant. On July 3 last year, the Orissa High Court had granted her bail. Ranjita was then dismissed from primary membership of BJD.
