The police said that “They were among the group of men and were seen in the video footages of news channels.”
But Nababajit and Diganta said that though they were present at the spot, they were in no way concerned with the molestation.
The police have identified at least 14 of the group of men who molested a girl in front of a bar on Monday night. Rubul Ali, Pinku Dey and Amarjyoti Kalita were identified as the main culprits.
Ranjan Bhuyan, SP Operation who will lead the SIT said that “Anyone who informs us about the main culprit, Amarjyoti Kalita, will be awarded with Rs 50,000. Information about others will fetch Rs 25,000.”
Assam Police sources said that Amarjyoti’s mobile phone records show that he often contacted a particular number in Bhubaneswar.
A police officer said that “We have alerted our counterparts there, but no results have come up. He is an IT guy and very smart. He has left no trace, but we are sure to nab him soon.”
