‘PARSHURAM’S CASE EXAMPLE OF LAW TAKING OWN COURSE’
Monday, 08 June 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Attending the Bhumi Puja of renaming Tikrapada Chowk as Parshuram Satapathy Chowk in the district headquarters town here on Friday, Rajya Sabha member AU Singh Deo said that Parshuram got justice after 41 years of his brutal murder and hence, the case is a glowing example of law taking its own course. He said, “Whosoever is involved in heinous crime like murder will get punished finally.” A statue of Parshuram will be installed here and steps would be taken for its beautification, including construction of a fountain, Singh Deo said further, praising the effort of deceased Parshuram’s family members who continued their legal fight over a long period of time without losing patience. His elder brother Hareram Satapathy was at the core of the family’s sustained struggle to get justice.
It would be pertinent to mention here that Parshuram was murdered 40 years ago in Balangir by some people having link influential persons and recently, the Odisha High Court convicted nine people in the case. Out of the nine, six are already dead. Police have arrested one Dhobei Podh while two accused are still absconding. The Balangir Municipality recently had adopted a resolution to rename the Tikrapada Chowk as Parshuram Satapathy Chowk. Among others, Balangir Municipality Executive Officer Santosh Behera, Chairman Santoshini Behera, several councilors, besides Hareram were present.
