Friday, 14 February 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIGARH

nBiju Janata Dal (BJD) leader and former Brajarajnagar legislator Anup Sai was arrested by Raigarh police over his alleged involvement in a double murder case.

According to police, Chakradhar Nagar Police arrested Anup Sai for           questioning in the murder case involving a mother-daughter duo in 2016.

“In May 2016 body of a woman and her daughter was found in Hamirpur village under Chakradhar Nagar Police at Chhattisgarh-Odisha border.  The bodies were brutally          disfigured by trampling with some heavy vehicle in order to hide their identity,” Superintendent of Police Raigarh Santosh Singh said. 

He has been booked under Sections 302 (murder), 201 (Causing disappearance of         evidence of offence) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of Indian Penal Code (IPC), the SP           confirmed.

Sai, a former MLA of Brajarajnagar in Sundargarh district, is currently serving as the chairman of Odisha Warehousing Corporation after joining BJD in 2014.

Following the development, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has removed Anup Sai from the chairmanship of the State Warehousing Corporation. He has also been expelled from the BJD.
