Irate mob vandalises Begunia PS in Khurda demanding action against MLA
Khurda: Tension erupted inside Begunia Police Station in the district today after a group of irate locals barged into the office campus and wreaked havoc causing damages to office property.
According to sources, hundreds of locals of the area made a forced entry into the police station campus demanding immediate arrest the local BJD MLA Prasant Jagdev for allegedly threatening former sarpanch Nanda Kishore Swain to life. They not only damaged office furniture and other documents stashed inside the police station but later gheraoed the police station and staged a road blockade which affected vehicular movement on National Highway 57.
The situation was brought under control after Khurda SP reached the spot and pacified the locals.
It may be noted that Swain had earlier informed the Begunia police about the threats from the MLA but after no action was taken against him, local residents took law into their own hands.
