Gangster Raja Acharya to walk free

Cuttack: After 10 years remaining in jail, gangster Sandeep alias Raja Acharya is most likely to come out of the prison as the Orissa High Court today granted him conditional bail in a 2010 case pertaining to the abduction of an employee of Jyoti Motors and extortion of money from him.

Raja, who was sentenced to life for killing judo coach Biranchi Das, had earlier obtained bail in all old cases.

While granting bail, the High Court has made it clear that the lower court will fix the conditions for Acharya. After satisfying all conditions, he will be released from jail.

Raja had become a known figure in the State’s crime record after he killed the judo coach and child marathon runner Budhia Singh’s trainer Biranchi Das. The case had rocked the State for around a month in April 2008.
