Rayagada: The audacity for Ganjai King Pin Anand Mishra, who was arrested by Rayagada police, is on the rise. After the arrest, the police confiscated Rs 32 lakh in cash from Anand. Anand’s personal bank account, which has a deposit of Rs 4.5 lakh, has now been shut down. The Rayagada police have also written to the Sadar tehsildar of Tarbha and Balangir in Sonepur district to assess and report on the total assets.
For the past four years, Anand has been expanding his network in Rayagada-Gajapati district and smuggling cannabis. In the Muniguda, Chandrapur and Adwa areas of Gajapati district in Rayagadadistrict, many people were able to cultivate cannabis in advance and collect cannabis after harvest. The smuggling has spread to Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Mumbai and Delhi. Even during the investigation, the Rayagada police found out that Anand was on Maharashtra’s Most Wanted list.
One after the other, explosive information has come to the fore after police stepped in to destroy Anand’s cannabis business art empire. In the preliminary investigation, the police froze the private bank account after gathering all the information about Anand’s network. Which has a stock of Rs 4.5 lakh. Similarly, Rayagada police have written to the Tarbha tehsildar regarding the details of houses, land and other property in the ancestral village Tarbha. Similarly, the police have also asked the tehsildar of Balangir to report on the Anand Chora network, which is located in Balangir. However, no information has been received from both tehsils so far. Police are still investigating the extent to which Anand was involved in the smuggling of cannabis in the last four years, whether it was in the amount of assets, income certificates, or income tax. Anand, on the other hand, still has millions of rupees in front of many cannabis mafias in Rayagada and Gajapati districts, according to a police investigation. While Anand Mishra was in Bisamkatak jail after his arrest, the police continued their efforts to confiscate black money by gathering strong evidence to file the chargesheet.
Notably, Ganjai King Pin Anand was arrested on September 3 under the leadership of Bisamakattak SDPO Akash Chandra Sahu. Anil’s main accomplice, Sunil Baliar of Hanumantapur, was arrested by the police in connection with the case. Chandrapur police arrested five mafias and seized two bikes, four mobile phones and Rs 32 lakh in cash while planning to smuggle cannabis from Adva through a pick-up van.
