Aditya Dash Death Case: HC Expresses Displeasure Over Crime Branch’s Failure To Submit Reports

Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today expressed its displeasure over the Crime Branch’s failure to submit a legible copy of the post-mortem report and a copy of the recorded statements of three witnesses in the mysterious death of social worker Aditya Dash.

Single member bench of Justice Biswajit Mohanty while listing the next hearing on January 25, directed the Crime Branch to submit the exact photocopy of the post-mortem report and a copy of the recorded statements of the three witnesses in the case by that date.

It may be pointed out here that wife of the deceased social worker, Bidyashree Dash, his father and mother had moved the High Court seeking a probe by the CBI in the case as the Crime Branch had failed to make much headway in its investigation.

Further, Bidyashree had attempted to commit suicide by consuming sleeping pills last month.

She had alleged that some people had been blaming her and her family for the death of her husband.

The body of Aditya Dash was found along the railway tracks near Lingaraj railway station on July 7 last year.
