Cuttack, April 10 (LocalWire): Former corporator of Cuttack municipal corporation Ranjita Biswal was arrested today and two guns seized from her possession, police said.
Biswal was earlier arrested in 2018 for her alleged links with the gangster brothers Sushant and Sushil Dhalasamant. She was dismissed from BJD’s primary membership following her arrest.
A special squad of the police raided her house and recovered two guns before arresting her, after a tip off by an associate of the D brothers who was arrested yesterday, Cuttack DCP, Akhileswar Singh said.
During interrogation, the gangster also confessed of a plan by the Dhalasamant brothers to create disturbance during the upcoming elections, Singh added.
Ranjita was arrested last year for allegedly supplying firearms to Mrityunjay Nayak, who had attempted to kill contractor Bijan Pal at the behest of Sushant Dhalasamant.
She was released from jail after the High Court granted her bail in July last year.
