**Bhubaneswar:** Alleging investigation at a snail’s pace by the State Government-constituted Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Odisha Crime Branch (CB) and requesting expedition of the ongoing probe into the mysterious deaths of the four siblings, aggrieved kin of Parala Maharaja’s former manager Anang Manjari Patra on Tuesday appealed the Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) to intervene.
Deceased Ananga Manjari’s brother, two sisters and brother-in-law moved the OHRC here on the day with their petition.
Notably, the decomposed bodies of Ananga Manjari, her sister Bijaylaxmi and brother Sanjay were recovered from her Jangam Sahi residence in Paralakhemundi on August 21.
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.
Police then stumbled upon three suicide notes from the sealed residence Names of eleven persons allegedly responsible for their deaths were mentioned in them.
The suicide notes prominently held Paralakhemundi MLA K Surya Rao and an Odia news channel responsible for their deaths.
Ananga Manjari and her brother Sanjay were accused of financial misappropriation with regard to royal property transactions of Parala Maharaja.
The SIT has so far interrogated many persons including Paralakhemundi MLA K Surya Rao, former BJD Gajapati district president Basant Das, Paralakhemundi Municipality councillor Bibhuti Nayak, Gajapati district BJP president K Rabana, Parala city Congress president Basant Panda and former BJD councillor Babuli Behera.
Talking to media, Amulya Patra said, “We came here to apprise the Odisha Human Rights Commission and the State Commission Women and urged for speeding up the probe. It’s already three months gone, but no tangible progress. The persons named in the suicide notes have abetted the mass suicidal deaths of my brothers and sisters. No justice yet.”
