Kerala Police track Bitti Mohanty`s identity in Odisha
Bhubaneswar: A Kerala Police team on Friday met police officials in Odisha to gather evidence to prove that the man arrested by them was Bitti Mohanty who jumped a parole in 2006 after his conviction for raping a German woman.
The team also visited a university here to verify if it had issued a B-Tech (Bachelor of Technology) certificate to anyone named as Raghav Rajan as claimed by the accused.
After verification, the team found it was untrue.
"The B.Tech degree certificate in the name of Raghav Rajan is forged. The same was issued in the name of Biti," said Josi Joesph, an inspector-rank officer leading the Kerala Police team which is here to verify the B.Tech degree certificate from KIIT University produced by the probationary bank officer who was arrested on March 8.
The team is expected to verify school records and meet family members of Mohanty in Cuttack to collect more evidence.
Bitti Mohanty was arrested from Alwar in 2006 for raping a German woman. He is the son of BB Mohanty, a former director general of police in Odisha. Bitti raped the German, a tourist, in Rajasthan`s Alwar district March 21, 2006, and was convicted on April 12, 2006.
Mohanty was sentenced to seven years` imprisonment for the rape. In November 2006, he secured the parole to meet his ailing mother. Since then, his whereabouts were unknown. He was allegedly living in Kerala concealing his identity.
He was arrested March 8 after the State Bank of Travancore, where he was working as a probationary officer, raised doubts about his identity.
Kerala Police have been gathering evidence after he described himself as Raghava Rajan and backed his claim with passport, electoral identity card, and school and college certificates some of which have Odisha connection.
