Odisha TV actor’s death: co-star Jessy deposes before police


Odisha Sun Times Bureau
Bhubaneswar, Feb 12:

Hours after police served notice on actor Pralipta Priyadarshini Samal aka Jessy to appear before it for questioning on actor Ranjit Patnaik alias Raja’s mysterious death, the actor this evening turned up at the Soro police station in Odisha’s Balasore district.


The popular female actor Jessy was accompanied by her mother to the police station.

Prior to appearing before the police, the actor called up the cops and urged them not to detain her at the police station for long, sources said.

Earlier in the day, police had served notice on the actor to depose before the Soro police by this evening failing which action would be initiated as per law.

Notably, event manager Pralay Jena and driver Dhaneswar Behera were interrogated for the second consequitive day as they had accompanied Raja to an event in Balasore district on Saturday.

Balasore SP Niti Sekhar also visited the place where Raja reportedly fell off an over bridge leading to his death.

While the trio has deposed before the police, the investigators are contemplating conducting polygraph test on Pralay and Dhaneswar.

“Polygraph test on Pralay and Dhaneswar is under consideration. They have given their consent to conduct the test. We would go ahead with it if need be,” Balasore SP Niti Sekhar said.
