Kerala Police team in Jaipur with rape convict Bitti

March 15, 2013 14:39 IST

After examining the records of Alwar jail, a team of Kerala Police on Friday arrived in the city with German woman rape case convict Bitti Mohanty to establish his identity.

The team from Kunnur district of Kerala along with the convict Mohanty arrived by a train from Alwar and went to Transport Nagar Police Station for a halt, police sources said.

The team will go to Jaipur jail to carry out its investigation.

Additional Commissioner of Jaipur police Biju George Joseph said that the Kunnur police will carry out its course of investigation.

The team had on Thursday visited Alwar jail and examined its record to verify the identity of Mohanty who was arrested in Kerala last week.

Bitti was arrested in Kerala on March 8 on a complaint by a bank following an anonymous letter to the bank stating that the probationary officer working as Raghav Rajan was the convicted son of the former Odisha Director General of Police B B Mohanty.

He was arrested on charges of impersonation, forgery and cheating in Kunnur district.

Bitty had been hiding from the law ever since he jumped parole in 2006 from Alwar jail in Rajasthan.

He was convicted by a local court in Alwar for raping his German friend in 2006 and was released in November 2006 on parole from Jaipur to meet his ailing mother at Cuttack, Odisha.
