Jaipur court issues warrant in parole-jumping case
Bitti Mohanty, who was arrested here in March on impersonation and cheating charges, will be handed over to the Rajasthan police for investigation into the case of his parole-jumping in 2006 while in Alwar jail in Rajasthan. He was convicted in the case of rape of a German national.
A three-member police team left for Rajasthan with Bitti by train from here on Thursday evening to hand him over to the Rajasthan police. According to the police here, a court in Jaipur had issued a warrant to produce him in the parole-jumping case.
Bitti had been working as a probationary officer in a public sector bank branch at Pazhayangadi here under the fake name of Raghav Rajan when he was arrested. The police found that earlier he had joined a college here under the fake name and had obtained an MBA degree.
The Additional District and Sessions Court at Thalassery had on May 17 allowed the prosecution’s plea for conducting the DNA test. The DNA test could be conducted only after getting blood samples of his parent. The police have initiated procedures for securing summons to be served on his parent for getting the latter’s consent for the test.
