Tirtol, Dec 13:
Odisha police today arrested two persons for allegedly threatening Tirtol MLA Rajashree Mallick.
Biridi police arrested two accused– Sameer Patnaik and Deepak Das—for allegedly threatening the legislator.
The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MLA from Jagatsinghpur district had filed a complaint regarding this with Tirtol police after the incident.
It may be recalled that another BJD MLA had received death threat over phone following which Sindhekela police had arrested two persons for sending death threat SMSs to the Kantabanji BJD MLA Haji Mohammad Ayub Khan on November 23. The two accused were arrested almost a week after the legislator filed a complaint with the police.
The duo impersonating as Maoists had allegedly sent text messages on the MLA’s mobile phone and warned to kill him within 10 days.
