Bhubaneswar, Jul 20:
A GRP constable in the Odisha capital, who went berserk assaulting his own officers and abusing railway passengers in a drunken state last night, was arrested today.
Constable Sadasib Mohapatra was sent to Jhapada jail here this evening after a local court rejected his bail plea.
Mohapatra came dead drunk and assaulted other GRP personnel and issued a death threat to the family members of SK Swain, IIC of the Bhubaneswar GRP police station, besides misbehaving with passengers last night, GRP sources told OST.
The constable went on a rampage inside the GRP police station and abused officers and staff, including the DSP, when they tried to intervene, they added.
He also misbehaved with doctors at the hospital and did not allow a medical test to be done on him when he was taken there this morning, IIC Swain said.
He was later produced in a court under the direct supervision of the SDPO and SP, GRP.
