A four member-CBI team led by IO went to the Special Jail, Bhubaneswar and brought Biban in a van to the CBI office here. On the way, they took Biban to the Capital Hospital for a health check up.
According to experts, the CBI might interrogate Biban to know who supported him in staying outside the State and, that too, by changing his name and address. The investigating officers will try to know more about the gang-rape, which had occurred near Baranga on January 9, 2019, from him. The CBI may ask Biban to recreate the scene of the ghastly act.
Biban’s remand would end tomorrow evening.
It may be noted that a Test Identification (TI) Parade had been conducted in the Jharapada jail premises yesterday. Gang-rape victim Mishra had there to identify the accused, Biban Biswal, from among 10 persons who had stood in a row.
Biban had been arrested from Pune by the Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Twin City Commissionerate Police on February 22, almost 22 years of the incident. While two accused had been arrested earlier, Biban was on the run.
