Cuttack: The Odisha Crime Branch last night arrested two persons including a home guard of the state police in connection with the attack on lawyer Debi Prasad Patnaik in the city.
The arrested have been identified as home guard Kishore Jena and and Dillip Singh.
On the other hand, the lawyers’ association, which has been resorting to a cease-work agitation since the incident, is scheduled to hold a meeting today to decide the further course of action regarding the strike.
Members of the association had yesterday staged picketing in front of various government offices, including offices of Treasury, Collector, Sub-Collector, Sub-Registrar, RDC and RTO in the district, protesting the attack.
It may be recalled that advocate Debi Prasad Patnaik had an argument with some cops in connection with a road accident at Nuabazar on August 28 night following which policemen had allegedly beaten him.
