Soumya had affairs with other women: Bidya

Saturday, 24 July 2021 | PNS | BARIPADA/ BALESWAR

In a new twist in the death of Parlakhemundi Assistant Conservator of Forests (ACF) Soumya Rajan Mohapatra, his wife Bidyabharati Panda, who had so far been silent over the murder charges levelled against her by her in-laws, on Tuesday claimed that her late husband had extramarital affairs with other women.

"He used to send 'I Love You' messages to other women over WhatsApp chat," Bidya claimed and said Soumya changed the password of his mobile phone after she learnt of their relationships.

Even though he had removed the contact lists, call histories and Whatsapp chat histories were there, Bidya further said.

Bidya further claimed that she learnt about Soumya’s affairs three months after marriage.

She refuted the allegations regarding an agreement paper on property transfer. The unsigned agreement paper has been seized by police. Bidya claimed that she was unaware of the agreement that was allegedly made for transfer of Soumya's salary and properties in her favour.

However, Soumya’s family denied the extramarital charge levelled by Bidya.

“Her statement is a ploy to escape police action. My son had never kept any illicit relationship with anyone. Many of his friends used to call him on several occasions. Some of them have tied rakhi to Soumya,” Soumya’s mother Tulasi Mohapatra said.

Bidyabharati's father rubbishes the charges of family feud between his daughter and son-in-law.

"There was no such conflict between my daughter and son-in-law. Whatever was there between them had been resolved. The family members of my daughter's in-laws are nice while my son-in-law was Godly," he said.

About the woman Police Inspector Mamata Panda, who had allegedly detained the ambulance carrying an injured Soumya to hospital, he said Mamata is a distant relative, but I don’t know her personally."
