Clean Chit To BMC Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena In Rishi ‘Murder’ Case & Viral Sex Video

**Bhubaneswar:** Commissionerate Police has given a clean chit to Bhubaneswar Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena in the engineering student Ashutosh Mohanty alias Rishi mysterious death case and the controversial sex video.

The Commissionerate Police has submitted its six-page-report to the Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) here on Wednesday making it clear that Jena has no direct or indirect link with the controversial sex video, which had an alleged connection with Rishi’s death.

The police report said that Mayor Jena had not called anyone on the day of the incident. Also, he has no link with the drug peddler arrested by police. The only conversation exchanged was with Rishi’s maternal uncle Rajkishore Mallick over phone after Rishi’s death as he was sharing healthy relation with him. Based on the allegation against Mayor Jena, the police had sent the mobile phone of Rishi to Kolkata-based forensic laboratory for examination.

While investigating the matter by tracking the mobile phones of Rishi’s girlfriend and friends, police got to know that they had talked to him one month prior to his death. The allegations made by them could not be made clear during the probe.

Media reports suggested, Rishi had spent the night partying with his roommates at the mess on May 5, 2016. His friends informed Khandagiri police after he did not wake up from his sleep in the morning and rushed him to Capital Hospital, where he was declared brought dead.

The preliminary police investigation said that excessive consumption of alcohol and drugs was the cause behind death of Rishi. However, the case turned critical after a controversial sex video-tape went viral featuring Jena and a woman. The opposition members and others claimed that the video tape was linked with the death of Rishi.

Notably, the Rishi death case had created a huge uproar in the political circles in the State with opposition political parties seeking immediate arrest and resignation of Jena from Mayor post.
