    Feb 23, 2012

    Phulbani: A Fast Track court here has acquitted 31 persons who had been accused of being involved in communal violence in Odisha's Kandhamal district in August 2008.

    Additional Sessions Judge of Fast Track court-2, BN Mishra while pronouncing judgement in an arson and rioting case, acquitted the 31 accused on Wednesday due to lack of proper evidence.

    It had been alleged by the prosecution that the accused persons had set fire to houses of people belonging to minority community in village Dakedi under G Udayagiri police station in August 2008 during Kandhamal riots, Additional Public Prosecutor S P Tripathy said.

    Communally sensitive Kandhamal district had witnessed largescale violence in the aftermath of the killing of VHP leader Laxmanananda Saraswati.
