Odisha BJP leader Jayanarayan Mishra walks out of jail


Bargarh: Odisha BJP leader and former minister Jayanarayan Mishra, who was arrested over his alleged involvement in the Banabira firing incident, walked out of Sohela sub-jail here today.

The Orissa High Court had on July 17 granted Mishra conditional bail against two sureties of Rs 50,000. Besides, Mishra has been asked by the High Court not to move out of station without the permission of lower court.

Notably, Mishra was arrested by Padampur police on March 15 in connection with a firing incident near Banabira village under Sohela block of Bargarh district, in which a BJD worker had died.

He was then admitted to VIMSAR in Burla on April 22 after he complained of chest pain while being lodged in Sohela sub-jail. He was later shifted to SCB Hospital on April 24.

Mishra was eventually taken to AIIMS, Delhi on May 5 as his health condition deteriorated. The HC had granted him interim bail on health grounds for treatment.
