Bhubaneswar, Jun 23:
Biranchi Mishra, son of self-proclaimed Odisha godman Sura Baba alias Surendranath Mishra of Trahi Achyut ashram was today interrogated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Sources said ED officials are grilling Mishra on land and financial dealings of the ashram.
The ED had yesterday interrogated ashram’s accountant Manoranjan Acharya for nearly five hours.
Similarly, Pilasky Swain, a close associate of another self-proclaimed godman Sarathi Baba alias Santosh Raula.
The ED had Wednesday grilled Sisir Khatua, another close aide of Sarathi.
It may be recalled here that Pilasky Swain was earlier grilled by the ED on June 2, this year and he had revealed to the media after his interrogation by the ED that the godman had given him Rs 20 lakh to manage the media after negative reports on him were doing rounds in the media.
He had then said that he had revealed the names to the ED but could not reveal it to the media.
Notably, both the self-proclaimed godmen are now in jail after their black deeds were exposed.
