Bhubaneswar, Dec 31:
The mystery girl and her mother today recorded their statements in Odisha capital in connection with the much talked about Rishi death and controversial sex video case.
As per reports, police recorded the statement of the duo under section 161 of CrPC. Besides, it is learnt that the cops have interrogated them about the controversial sex video.
The investigators went to their house to record statements.
“Police are very closely looking at all available evidence. Our effort is to ensure that a perfect investigation or inquiry takes place. As I said whatever is required to be done as part of the inquiry, we will do it,” Twin City Commissioner YB Khurania said.
It may be mentioned here that the girl in question and her mother had yesterday rejected the allegations of having any link with Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena.
On the other hand, the demand for Mayor’s ouster refuses to die down as Opposition Congress and BJP today staged separate protests here.
The BJP held roadside shows at two places alleging the government of shielding the accused.
“They are trying to dump the law for which we are conducting ‘Janata Darbar’. Our agitation would continue till the guilty is punished. BJP leader Nayan Kishore Mohanty said.
Veteran Congress leader Suresh Routray said: “The more the Mayor issue lingers, it is good for Congress.”
The BJD, however, said that the party would take action if the accused is proved guilty.
“Nobody has given clean chit to Mayor. The matter is subjudice. The party is awaiting the court decision. Our leader would definitely take action against anyone found guilty,” senior BJD leader Prasanta Nanda said.
