BHUBANESWAR: BJD members yesterday sought an inquiry into alleged land grabbing by Jharsuguda MLA Naba Kishore Das (Congress) in Sambalpur.

Raising the issue in the assembly, BJD MLA Samir Ranjan Dash said there should be a high-level inquiry into the allegation that Das and his wife grabbed land from a tribal woman.

"It is a serious charge. I urge the government to inquire into the matter," said Samir, highlighting media reports about police complaint against Naba.

Samir said the woman alleged that Naba influenced government officers to project the complainant as dead and issueless to snatch her property.

The woman, Gangi Munda, had filed an FIR at Dhanupalli police station in Sambalpur against Naba and his wife. Samir's party colleague Pravat Ranjan Biswal supported the demand.

Naba dismissed the charges as baseless. "These are false and absurd allegations to malign my image," he said.

"How can I influence government officers to project someone as dead? I am in the opposition. I would like to tell the BJD members that the government is being run by their party. They can conduct an inquiry if they want to establish the truth," Naba told the media outside the assembly.

Gangi, a native of Kurotula locality in Sambalpur, inherited the land in Ainthapali. According to the allegation, land mafia manipulated the title by declaring Gangi and two of her kin dead.
