The Inside Story

Alwar, Rajasthan, Mar 21, 2006

Bitti Mohanty, convicted of rape, arrested in Kerala

The Rajasthan Police will seek the custody of Bitti Mohanty, who was convicted of raping a German tourist in 2006 and was arrested in Kerala after absconding. Bitti was sentenced to seven years in prison for the rape of a 26-year-old German woman in Alwar. The team of Rajasthan Police is expected to reach Kannur on Monday with jail and production warrants.

Bitti, the son of former Odisha DGP BB Mohanty, had been working as a Probationary Officer in a public sector bank in Kannur for the last three years under the name of 'Raghav Rajan' from Andhra Pradesh. He has denied that his father helped him jump bail and get a new identity. Police suspect that at least three close relatives were in constant touch with Bitti.

Bitti has been charged with cheating, forgery, and impersonation by Kerala Police. He was remanded to 14-day judicial custody by a magistrate yesterday. Bitti landed in trouble after the employees of the bank branch at Pazhayangadi grew suspicious of his true identity on seeing his photo among pictures of accused in various sex crimes shown by TV channels and those floated on the Internet in the wake of the Delhi gangrape incident. Bitti was picked up from his local residence on Friday evening, and during interrogation revealed his true identity after initially trying to mislead the police.
