Odisha: 56-Year-Old Man Arrested For Dacoity He Committed As Teenager

Kendrapada: Odisha DGP Abhay on Saturday praised Patkura police of Kendrapada district for arresting Akhaya Jena, who was on the run for nearly four decades after allegedly committing a dacoity.

A non-bailable warrant was pending against him in a 1984 dacoity case, which took place at Jajpur road. He was a teenager then and had fled to evade arrest.

Acting on a tip-off that Jena had returned home recently, police raided Palasudha village under Patkura police limits on Thursday night and nabbed the 56-year-old man.
