Bhubaneswar, Mar 28:
The Crime Branch today took Sujit Sahu, prime accused in the posting of pictures of over 100 students of Rama Devi (RD) Women’s University on Facebook with objectionable remarks on a three-day remand for further interrogation.
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed by the Crime Branch nabbed Sahu from a semi-constructed house in Mahanga in Cuttack district last night, Crime Branch Special DG B K Sharma told reporters today.
The Chief Minister had yesterday ordered a Crime Branch probe into the incident following which an eight-member special team was constituted for investigation.
The Chief Minister ordered the probe after 40 girl students of RD Women’s University, Sailabala Women’s College and Kamala Nehru Women’s College, led by Biju Chhatra Janata Dal (BCJD) president Byomkesh Ray met Patnaik at the Odisha Assembly demanding Crime Branch investigation into the matter.
Notably, photographs of over 100 students of the varsity were posted on Aarohi Creations’ Facebook page with objectionable caption “sex contest”.
Several girl students had filed a complaint with Saheed Nagar police against Aarohi Creations’ chief Sujit Sahu on Saturday.
Sources said, a few days back under the garb of conducting a display picture competition among the students, Sahu had visited the varsity.
After a few days of Sahu’s visit to the varsity campus, pictures of several students were seen posted on social networking site Facebook with objectionable remarks against them.
Meanwhile, a female student of a college in Rourkela today lodged a complaint with the police there alleging that her photograph too had appeared on Aarohi Creations Facebook page with similar objectionable remarks.
