Bhubaneswar: Anjana Mishra, survivor of the sensational gangrape that took place way back in 1999, identified main accused Biban Biswal during the test identification (TI) parade conducted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) here Wednesday at Jharpara jail.
“I have identified the prime accused Biban Biswal during the TI parade. However, I will have to identify the accused in court in front of the judge once more,” Mishra said after coming out of the prison premises.
The victim said the identification parade lasted for approximately 10 minutes.
“There were around 10 to 12 people of similar body structure present during the parade. However, I successfully managed to identify the main accused,” Mishra told media persons.
The TI parade at the Jharpara jail was conducted in presence of JMFC Srujalin Mohanty and CBI officials. During the parade, which started at 2.30 in the afternoon, the victim’s driver Nilakantha Rout was also present, sources said.
The special CBI court had Tuesday allowed the probe agency to take the prime accused Biban on a two-day remand for further investigation. The CBI sleuths from Kolkata will take Biban on remand Thursday for further interrogation.
