“Slain Paree’s mother Saudamini Sahoo had filed a petition on January 14, seeking justice for Paree. A hearing was conducted in the Supreme Court yesterday. The State Government didn’t submit any reply but sought four more weeks for submission of case details only to protect Minister Arun Sahoo,” alleged BJP general secretary Lekhasri Samantsingha at a Press meet here.
She slammed the State Government for engaging advocate EC Agrawal to fight the case in the apex court. She said the Government is unnecessarily spending public money by engaging advocate Agrawal. “EC Agrawal is the highest paid advocate of the country. The Government had also engaged him to seek Supreme Court’s order for cancellation of the last Rath Yatra. The State Government has engaged Agrawal only to save the Minister,” alleged Samantsinghar further.
She reiterated the party’s demand the case be handed over to the CBI so that Paree can get justice and missing of all 5,500 children can be unraveled.
