Saturday, 19 October 2013 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar

Local police in Balangir arrested two persons in connection with manhandling a constable and a Home Guard inside town police station on Wednesday night.
According to reports, a PCR van received a complaint that a few young men were creating disturbance in the Palace line area by drinking liquor and gambling in public. Police reached the area and brought the situation under control.
However, at around 10.30 pm, the youngsters, allegedly caught gambling and trouble-mongering, while returning from a Durga visarjan went to the town police station to lodge an FIR.
Trouble brewed when they asked a policeman for a pen to lodge their complaint.
A heated exchange of words took place between the youngsters and the police, which subsequently escalated into violence with the men roughing up a constable and a Home Guard.
A case was registered in the town police station and two men were arrested.
On being allegedly beaten up by the police, one of the arrested, identified as Sajjain Acharya, sustained injuries.
“There was an allegation of public consumption of liquor with gambling by some young men near the Palace line area. A PCR van went there and cleared the area. Disgruntled with police action, the men wanted to settle scores and resorted to roughhousing a constable and a Home Guard on duty. Of the four accused, two were arrested and sent to court,”
said SP Ravi Prakash,
rubbishing all charges of police assault on the two men after their arrest.
