Even as investigations are underway into BJD Zilla Parishad (ZP) Member Dharmendra Sahoo's death case, police on Tuesday sent the deceased’s smart watch and the hard disk of the CCTV installed at his residence to the laboratory for forensic test.
Reports said Sahoo was operating the CCTV at his residence through the smartwatch. Besides, it is suspected that Sahoo might have sent messages to someone thorough the watch before his death.
The BJP on the day released an audio in which Sahoo was heard saying to a close friend that five persons, including his wife and Minister Samir Ranjan Dash, are responsible for his death.
BJP members staged a demonstration by blocking Nimapada-Pipili road near Dolabedi Chhak and demanded action against School and Mass Education Minister Sameer Ranjan Dash.
The police should probe who used and deleted the videos in the mobile phones of Sahoo before throwing them. All the suspects in the case, including the Minister should be brought under the purview of the probe, demanded State BJP vice-president Pravati Parida.
The cops had on Sunday sent the two mobile phones of Sahoo, which they had recovered near the residence of Sahoo at Sishupalgarh with the help of dog squad on Saturday, for forensic test.
