Jagatsinghpur, Jan 6:

Odisha Stevedores Limited (OSL) Managing Director Mahimananda Mishra, who has been arrested in connection with the murder of Seaways Shipping and Logistics Private Limited (SSPL) General Manager Mahendra Swain, moved Jagatsinghpur district and sessions judge court today seeking bail.


Besides, Rakesh Chaubey, an accused in the murder case who has already been arrested, also moved the court for bail.

Mihsra, currently lodged in Samagol jail here, was yesterday produced before the Kujang JMFC court after completion of his four-day remand period.

The court had allowed Paradip police to take Mishra on a 4-day remand from January 1 for further interrogation in the murder case.

The court has also allowed the Talcher police to take Mishra on one-day remand for further questioning over his alleged involvement in the Jalaram Transport firing case.

Before getting arrested, the OSL chief had moved the Odisha High Court seeking anticipatory bail. However, the court denied interim protection to him.
