Odisha Sun Times Bureau
Bhubaneswar, Sep 12:

The Advocate General of Odisha Ashok Mohanty today resigned from his post, reports said.

His resignation has also been accepted by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, the reporst added.

Mohanty was appointed as the advocate general in June 2009 and was continuing in the post since then.


  1. CBI is likely to interrogate Mr. Ashok Mohanty in Mega Chit Fund Scam Case. He had committed a blunder by purchasing the immovable property from Pradeep sethy, CMD of Artha Tatwa Chit Fund Company. It is not known whether he took this risk knowingly or unknowingly but being a law-knowing person he should not have committed such a mistake.

    Hence CBI should seize the immovable property (plot No. 11-3B/1332 of ‘B’ category measuring 4000 square foot, in Sector-11 in Bidanasi Project Area, Cuttack) of former Advocate General Ashok Kumar Mohanty as this property was in possession of Pradeep Sethy, Managing director of Artha Tatwa Chit Fund Company till 08.02.2013 and it is there in the FIR lodged against Pradeep Sethy in Balasore (Balasore Town P.S. Case No. 352 of 2012 dated 06.10.2012, U/S 420/506/34 I.P.C etc ) as well as Kharabela Nagar Police Station, Bhubaneswar Case No. 44 dated 07.02.2013.
