Bhubaneswar: It is unfortunate that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is politicising the death of Smitarani Biswal, the Village Level Worker (VLW) for Haridaspur panchayat in Jajpur district who had died on Thursday under mysterious circumstances, said BJD spokesperson and MP Sasmit Patra on Saturday.
Patra said the police is probing the case and giving any statement in this regard till the probe report is out is inappropriate. Let the opposition parties wait till its arrival.
Earlier today, senior BJP leader Prakash Mishra while addressing a presser in Bhubaneswar had alleged that Biswal has been murdered. He demanded a free and fair probe of the case and hand over the case to the CBI.
