Cuttack, Dec 3:

Orissa High Court today denied interim protection to Odisha Stevedores Limited (OSL) chief Mahimananda Mishra in connection with the murder of a senior executive of a stevedoring company.


According to reports, the High Court asked the police to submit the case diary of the case.

It may be recalled that Mishra on November 18 had moved the High Court seeking anticipatory bail in the case pertaining to the murder of Seaways Group General Manager Mahendra Swain.

Besides, police had issued lookout circular against Mishra and others named in the FIR in connection with the murder.

On October 26 shots were fired at Swain near Ambedkar Bhawan at Madhuban Colony in Paradip. Two miscreants had hurled crude hand bombs at the SUV in which Swain was travelling. While Swain was fleeing to save himself after alighting from the vehicle, miscreants fired two rounds at him leading to his death.
