Parala Mass Suicide: Crime Branch Seeks 2 Months Time To Submit Probe Report

**Bhubaneswar:** Crime Branch on Monday appealed Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) for granting it two months of time to submit the much-awaited probe report on the sensational Parala mass suicide as the report is not yet prepared.

Notably, decomposed bodies of Ananga Manjari, her sister Bijaylaxmi and brother Sanjay were recovered from her Jangam Sahi residence in Paralakhemundi on August 21. Ananga Manjari and her brother Sanjay were accused of financial misappropriation with regard to royal property transactions of Parala Maharaja.

Another brother, Santosh was rescued from the house where he was found wriggling on the kitchen floor in a critical condition. Unfortunately, he too succumbed to his treatment the following day at Berhampur-based MKCG Medical College and Hospital.

Three suicide notes were recovered from the residence with names of eleven persons who were allegedly responsible for their deaths.

The suicide notes prominently held Paralakhemundi MLA K Surya Rao and an Odia news channel responsible for their deaths.

Protests and demonstrations were held at different places from an impartial probe into the matter.

Following such a public outcry, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has ordered a Crime Branch probe into the sensational mass suicide and a six-member SIT is investigating into the case.
