Bhubaneswar: The Khurda District Sessions Court on Wednesday granted bail to former Chief Finance Officer (CFO) and director of the Odisha Infratech Private Ltd (OIPL) Manoranjan Sarangi.
The court, however, rejected the bail plea of OIPL agent Siba Prasad Srichandan.
Sarangi, who will be released from the Jharpada jail, was arrested by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Crime Branch from his house on November 1 in connection with the alleged land-grabbing at Sarua village in Khurda district.
After the arrest of Sarangi, his brother-in-law Harihar Mishra has demanded the grilling of the former Kendrapada MP and BJP leader Baijayant Panda and OTV MD Jagi Panda in connection with the case.
The EOW has served notice to one more OIPL director Nihar Ranjan Bhuyan for interrogation. Bhuyan is also shouldering additional charge of CFO of the OTV following the resignation of Sarangi.
