ODISHA LOST THE MOST HONEST AND EFFICENT POLICE OFFICER .
Bhubaneswar,12/11/17:Binay Behera left for his heavenly abode on 11th November 2017 after a brief illness in a private hospital in the capital city.
Binay Behera, who retired as Director General (Fire Services & Home Guards) on October 31, died here on Saturday.
The 1982-batch IPS officer was admitted in a private hospital on November a day after his retirement. The end came around 10.30pm. He had developed pnemonia.. He was 60 years old.
He was a native of Junagarh in Kalahandi district.
Though a very honest and effcient police officer, he was virtually victimised for his free and frank statement during the brutal murder of Judo coach Biranchi Das, who had taught the child runner Budhia and had broght him to lime light.and trained him to break Limca Book of Records .
After Biranchi was shot dead from point blank rage at his Gymnasyum , Mri Behera who was the Commissioner of Police had stated about probablr link of top bureaucrats, politicians , media persons and scrap mafias which had sent shock wave among many and he was soon transferred. But being an upright officer he did not bent his head for a better posting. After his transfer the investigation about death of Judo Coach Biranchi Das did not reveal about the links of powerful bureaucrats, politicians and scrap mafias and none of them could be brought to the book.
Late Binay Behera was the son of famous engineer, educationist and writer Bhubaneswar Behera.who was honoured by many organistions for his literary creations and scientific achievements.
On many occasions I had personally interacted with him . He was a gentleman par excellence, siumple and honest and was a real hero who should be followed by all police personnel to put an end to all criminal activities and expose all however powerful they might be.
On his untimely and sad demise I pray God to rest his soul in peace and give enough strength to his family members to face the world with courage.
