BJD corporator arrested for links with mafia
Soon after Biswal was arrested yesterday, the BJD suspended her from primary membership of the party. Prior to her election to the council of the city civic body on a BJD ticket in 2014, Ranjeeta was working as a city reporter of a vernacular daily.
Biswal rejected the allegation against her and said "I have been framed by some rivals."
