It Was Painful To See His Face Again After 22 Years: Anjana Mishra

Bhubaneswar: It took me about 10-12 minutes to identify him. It was also painful to see his face after 22 years,” Baranga gangrape survivor Anjana Mishra said after the test identification (TI) parade of the main accused in the case at Jharpada Special Jail.

Whether she has identified Bibekananda Biswal aka Biban correctly would be ascertained by the CBI on Thursday or Friday.

Anjana had earlier told the media that it would be difficult on her part to recognise the prime accused in the case after 22 years.
