Akash, Son Of Suspended Odisha IFS Officer Abhay Pathak, Pleads Innocent In Court

Bhubaneswar: Akash Pathak, the son of suspended IFS officer Abhay Pathak, on Friday pleaded innocent in a court here.


The Commissionerate Police produced both Abhay and Akash before the Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate (SDJM) court here. “I have not duped anyone and have proof for the same,” Akash told the court.

The Kharavel Nagar police informed the court about new cases filed against the duo. They have initiated investigation into fraud allegations levelled against Akash by Bhubaneswar-based travel agency Sky King.

The court allowed the Odisha Crime Branch (CB) to take Akash on a five-day remand. The CB wants to make joint interrogation of Abhay, Akash, Akash’s secretary David Peter and Gopalpur MLA Pradeep Panigrahi, who was expelled by BJD recently, sources said.

The Odisha Vigilance has arrested Abhay and Akash on charges of possessing properties disproportionate to their known sources of income. Akash has also been accused of cheating people on pretext of providing jobs. Panigrahi is allegedly involved in the cases against father and son.
