Puri police have seized helicopter of Indian Metals & Ferro Alloys (IMFA). FIR lodged against former MP Baijayant Panda; the incident had taken place on Sept 15.
“A local cop from Puri has come to Bhubaneswar airport & “seized” the hangar & the helicopter i fly. Clearly, facts have no bearing, & cops privately admit “orders from 3rd floor” Brazen attempt to handicap my movement around Odisha, but they cant stop me,” tweets Baijayant Panda.
“Today a State Govt official filed an F.I.R, citing media reports (saying a Seaplane landed in Chilika at 1.30 PM) BUT changing description to “helicopter.” F.I.R still says Chilika lending at 1.30 PM, when I’d landed in Bhubaneswar,” tweets Baijayant Panda
It should be noted that earlier FIR lodged at Marine Police Station in Arakhkuda, Puri by Chilika Development Authority alleging unauthorised flying over ‘No Flying Eco Sensitive Zone’ endangering human & wildlife .
