Bhubaneswar, Dec 19:

The Twin City Commissionerate police probing the alleged murder of engineering student Ashutosh Mohanty alias Rishi today interrogated one more friend of the deceased.


The police had quizzed three of the deceased’s friends yesterday.

Rishi’s mother Pritirani Mohanty had lodged a fresh complaint with the Khandagiri police yesterday seeking to expedite probe into her son’s mysterious death. She had asked the police to bring deceased Rishi’s friends, roommates and so called girlfriend within the purview of its investigation.

“On that fateful day, we stayed with him (Rishi) in the same room. Police questioned me on how Rishi died,” said Subham, Rishi’s friend to reporters after being questioned by the police.

“We had no idea that he used to consume drugs. But on that day we ourselves saw him taking drugs. Me and a common friend Nanda, an engineering student was in that room on that day. I have no idea about his girlfriend or about the video clip. He had never told us anything about that,” he clarified.
