Senior Orissa police officer BB Mohanty surrendered in a court in Jaipur on Thursday, more than a year after his rapist son jumped parole.
Mohanty, who was suspended as director general of police (home guard and fire service) by the Orissa government, was wanted by the Rajasthan police for his alleged role in helping his son Bitti Hotra Mohanty jump parole in November 2006.
Bitti Mohanty was convicted of raping a 26-year-old German tourist in Alwar in March 2006. An Alwar court sentenced him to seven years in jail.
He was allowed a 15-day parole to meet his ailing mother on Nov 20, 2006, but he did not return to jail.
