Bhubaneswar, Nov 7:

Bolagarh Tehsildar Niharika Nayak today met Odisha Revenue Secretary here and apprised the latter about the alleged assault on her by BJD’s Begunia MLA Prasanta Jagadev.


Nayak reportedly sought her transfer from Bolagarh.

It may be recalled here that Jagdev had allegedly thrown a lantern at Nayak on October 31 after the MLA asked her to conduct eviction from an encroached land at Ekadalua village in Bolagarh Tehsil during night.

The Tehsildar had replied to the legislator that eviction can be carried out next morning after measurements and other formalities. The MLA got irritated and threw a lantern at Nayak which hit her body, the Tehsildar had alleged.

Later, an FIR was filed by Nayak against Jagdev accusing him of assaulting her while she was discharging her official duty.
