Jagatsinghpur: A local court in Jagatsinghpur district on Tuesday allowed the police to take Mahimananda Mishra, managing director of Orissa Stevedores Limited (OSL), and his aide Basant Bal on four-day remand for further interrogation into the Paradip murder case.
They were sent to jail on Tuesday after the court rejected their bail plea.
They have been arrested in connection with the murder of Mahendra Swain, the general manager of Seaways Shipping and Logististics Limited (SSLL).
Police produced them before the office-cum-residence of Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC), Kujang on Tuesday.
Last night Mishra and Bal, who were detained by the police in Thailand, were brought back to the state capital. Both were detained on Sunday in Thailand, with the assistance of Interpol.
The duo had escaped to Kathmandu after hiding at several places in the country following the murder of Seaways Shipping official Mahendra Swain on October 26.
