Justice for Saumya
Justice for Saumya
The people of Odisha have been in deep pain and anguish since 13th July 2021 over the mysterious death of a young and dynamic forest officer Saumya Ranajan Mohapatra, who was only 32 years old.
Saumya was working as Assistant Conservator of Forests, Paralakhemundi in Gajapati district of Odisha since June 2020. This was his first posting after completion of induction training at CASFoS, Coimbatore. He got married in December 2020 and was living with his wife at his official residence. He was doing exceptionally well in his professional journey.
But, he was found to have sustained burn injuries under mysterious circumstances around 9PM of 13th July 2021 at his official residence and admitted at DHH, Paralakhemundi by his wife and staffs. As his condition was very serious, he was referred to MKCG College & Hospital, Berhampur. But, again the decision changed and referred to Ashwini Hospital, Cuttack, which was more than 300km distance from Paralakhemundi. He succumbed to death due to the burn injuries after 12 hrs of struggle at the hospital. As per the media reports and the revelations of family members, the death of Saumya is not an accident, rather it seems like a pre-planned murder. It has also been alleged that some influential persons are involved in this case. The circumstantial evidences gathered so far are also raising doubts in the minds of all and they are demanding a time bound investigation through Crime Branch or CBI to unearth the truth behind the mysterious death of Saumya.
Hence, we support the family members of Saumya in their demand before state government for causing investigation through Crime Branch or CBI and punish the culprits at the earliest.
Let's seek justice for Saumya. Say his name
