Raghav Rajan's B.Tech certificate forged: Kerala police

A Kerala Police team probing the antecedents of Raghav Rajan, whom the police believe to be Bitihotra Mohanti, the rape convict son of a former Odisha DGP, on Friday said his certificate from a private university here was fake.

“The B.Tech degree certificate in the name of Raghav Rajan is forged. The same was issued in the name of Biti,” said Josi Joesph, an inspector-rank officer leading the Kerala Police team which is here to verify the B.Tech degree certificate from KIIT University produced by the probationary bank officer who was arrested on March 8.

While Kerala Police claimed that they had arrested Bitihotra, the arrested man said he was not former Odisha DGP B.B. Mohanti’s son and was Raghav Ranjan from Andhra Pradesh.

Bitihotra was convicted for the rape of a German woman and sentenced to seven years imprisonment at Alwar Jail in Rajasthan. He was released on parole in December 2006 but he jumped bail and remained untraced since.

The Kerala Police team would also visit the Stewart School in Cuttack where Bitihotra had studied.
