A photocopy of former Orissa DGP B B Mohanty's official identity card has been recovered from the room rented by his son, Bitti Mohanty, in Sai Sri Enclave in Puttaparthi.
After his arrest last week, Bitti, who jumped parole following his conviction in a rape case in 2006, had claimed that he was Raghav Rajan. The photocopy of the identity card is the only documentary evidence so far that links him with the former DGP.
Although Bitti was living in Kannur, he had retained the one-room apartment in Puttaparthi where he lived for over two years after renting it in November 2007. He would regularly deposit the rent in his landlord's bank account.
The Kerala Police special investigation team, assisted by the Puttaparthi police, today broke open the lock of his room. Besides a copy of the former DGP's identity card, they found a number of documents connected to Bitti's new identity as Raghav Rajan.
Police also found a laptop and a printer, along with some printouts of fake documents. The SIT personnel questioned Bitti's neighbour Rama Rao, officials of Prashanti Nilayam, the Sathya Sai Baba ashram, and officials of Sri Vidya Degree College and Deena Janoddharana school for orphans, where Bitti taught mathematics and computers.
Meanwhile, the former DGP and his wife are reported to have left their Cuttack house early this morning.
Bitti, who was working with the State Bank of Travancore as Raghav Rajan, was suspended Wednesday.
