Baijayant Panda and his wife Odisha Infratech Pvt Ltd are the owners of the company. According to the information, on 31 October, the Economic Offenses Wing of the Odisha Police filed an FIR against this company. It alleged that between 2010 and 2013, the Panda couple pressurized Rabindra Kumar Sethi of the Dalit community and forced them to buy 7.294 acres of land belonging to 22 Dalits.
During this time Rabindra was a driver in Panda’s company. The Panda couple is alleged to have violated the law prohibiting Dalits from buying non-Dalits. Now, after the court has not interfered in the case and the earlier orders are canceled, the crisis has deepened on them. Earlier on November 6, the court issued an order not to arrest the Panda couple till 12 November.
