While raising curtain over the truth the SP dubbed Chittaranjan Mohanty as the conspirator of the crime and said he tried to settle a 20-year-old score with Sonu Nayak.
Chitta, who had a close nexus with land grabbers had unsuccessfully tried to purchase a piece of land owned by Sonu’s family in the past. As they refused to sell the land an enmity had grown between the two sides, Dagdu said.
While the accused tried to kill Sonu’s brother Bhuban a week ago in a similar manner the latter sustained critical injuries in the attempt, he added.
Chitta had hatched a plan to eliminate all the members of Sonu’s family and on the day of the series accident he was driving the mini-truck. The mini truck mowed down the bike and then rammed into a wheat-laden truck at RTO square.
While two persons were boarding the killer mini-truck the identity of the other one is yet to be ascertained.
