Odisha Congress calls Koraput bandh on Saturday


Odisha Sun Times Bureau

Jeypore/ Koraput, Apr 11 :

The Congress has called a bandh in the Koraput district in Odisha on Saturday, April 12, to protest the murderous attack on two close relatives of former MLA and senior leader Taraprasad Bahinipati, allegedly by BJD workers at the behest of the BJD minister Rabinarayan Nanda, late on Thursday.

Nanda, however, refuted the allegations and said he welcomes a proper inquiry into the incident.

Earlier in the day, Congress workers disrupted traffic in Jeypore by staging road blockade over the incident and gheraoing the local police station.

Congress leader Bahinipati, who insisted that the attack was masterminded by his political rival Rabinarayan Nanda, demanded stringent action against the culprits as well as the people behind it.

A case has been registered and the hunt is on to nab the culprits, PK Senapati, SDPO, Jeypore said.
