Odisha Honeytrap Kingpin Archana Nag’s French-Style Villa Copied From Designs Of Vietnam-Based Group

Bhubaneswar: The kingpin of honeytrap racket in Odisha, Archana Nag, had a penchant for the good life. The 26-year-old, who is currently lodged in Jharpada Special Jail following her arrest on October 6 on charges of honey-trapping several influential people and extorting money from them, reportedly amassed Rs 30 crore assets, including a 3-storey palatial bungalow, in just over four years.

Police found luxurious furniture worth around Rs 40 lakh, a fleet of luxury cars and SUVs like Toyota Fortuner and Mahindra Thar and imported interior decoration materials during the raid at Satya Vihar in the Palasuni area. She had four high-breed dogs and a white horse as pets.

According to sources, the three-storey palatial house is a ‘Neoclassical’ design copied from Vietnam-based Kien Thinh Group’s website and built in a modern French style in a square shape. The first floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, lobby and water closet (toilet), while there 2 bedrooms, an office, a dressing room, a balcony, and a water closet on the 2nd floor. A worship room, SHC room, bedroom, playground, and drying yard comprise the third floor, the company website says.

The villa also has a large yard and carries imprints of Vietnamese culture.

The interiors of Archana’s house have also been designed from the demo layouts available on the website of this Vietnamese company, the sources added.

Archana and his husband Jagabandhu Chand also own a farmhouse at Nakhara and have a share in a pre-owned car showroom.

Police, which had sought bank details of her five accounts, also found over Rs 5 crore transactions in the last 6 months. She reportedly spent around Rs 60 lakh to 70 lakh on online shopping during this period. Influential people, who were allegedly solicited by Archana and her associates, also showered her with expensive gifts. A former minister had allegedly gifted her a vanity bag worth Rs 3 lakh manufactured by the reputed company Elvis on her birthday.
