MLA Pradeep Panigrahi gets bail in Crime Branch case
Cuttack: The Orissa High Court on Wednesday granted conditional bail to Gopalpur MLA Pradeep Panigrahi in the case registered against him by the State Crime Branch.
Panigrahi was granted bail with the condition of furnishing bail bonds of Rs 5 lakh each with two sureties and Rs 24 lakh cash security.
However, the legislator will not be released from Jharpada Jail in Bhubaneswar as another case filed against him by the State Vigilance pertaining to corruption charges is pending.
Odisha Crime Branch had arrested the MLA on December 3, last year in connection with a case registered with the Cyber police station. He was arrested under Sections 419, 420, 467, 468, 469, 471, 120-B of the IPC and Section 66C/66D of IT Act.
Evidence came to light that Panigrahi collected money from people on behalf of Akash Pathak, son of suspended IFS officer Abhay Pathak, on the false promise of providing jobs in Tata company. This case relates to impersonation, cheating, forgery, criminal conspiracy and other cyber offences by Akash Kumar Pathak, the Crime Branch had earlier said.
