Bargarh: The Special Task Force (STF) of Odisha Crime Branch today took the four accused arrested in connection with the death of a tiger, whose carcass was found in Debrigarh Wildlife Sanctuary in Bargarh last month, on a two-day remand.
The STF today appealed the Bargarh Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate (SDJM) for a two-day remand of the four accused identified as Sushil Bhoi, Satyaban Sahu, Gauri Mirddha and Jakaria Tidu. After the court allowed the cops to take the four on remand, a team of the investigating agency led by Crime Branch DSP Bilasini Nayak took the accused to Bargarh Town police station for further interrogation.
