Cases have been registered against several Congress leaders including state Congress in-charge Jagdish Tytler and Niranjan Patnaik on charges pertaining to Thursday's violence," Deputy Commissioner of Police Nitinjeet Singh said.
Singh said five cases have so far been registered at the Capital Police Station and Kharavel Nagar police station while efforts were being made to identify those responsible for the violence.
The charges were criminal conspiracy, rioting, causing grievous injury, endangering lives of others, outraging modesty and mischief under IPC and Prevention of Destruction of Public Property Act, police sources said.
While over 34 persons have been arrested for the violence and attack on a woman constable, who was critically injured, more arrests were likely after identification of culprits from CCTV footage, Assistant Commissioner of Police Nihar Das said.
The Congress, filed a counter FIR against Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik who is the BJD president and the police for attack on partymen and for trespass in Congress Bhavan.
"We have filed two FIRs at the Capital Police Station seeking action against the people who assaulted our partymen and forcibly entered our party headquarters," OPCC President Niranjan Patnaik said.
Sack this scam mongering Congress government and arrest all perpetrators.
Is this Tytler guy same who was accused of 1984 riots? I wonder what IE would have written if Modi has led this protest?
our constitution enforced &reinforced with natural rights & to be redressed in speech & discussion not by violent means or having any criminal intention. it is not good to assault a lady constable & to beat mercilessly. there are many political platforms to disseminates the misdeeds of government if if it is inherent. to take special drive by c b i or judicial inquiry but not by violent means through mass which beget anarchism in the state. election is the most sophisticated machinery blessed by democracy to oust a corrupted government if any one conceives & conformed but not by violent procedure ,which is anti constitutional & criminal oriented. we should follow law & order & unearth the faults of the government if commited should be proved by pen & paper but not by sticks &stones
I believe he has hand in the sikh riots of 1984 and has not been punished.
They have exploited this country through their guundas.But now things are coming out through mobile photos,video recording, Media, TV and people have come to know their devil faces.
Why tytler? why not Naveen patnaik., who ordered brutual lathicharge on Congress, same as Britishers used to beat Ghandhi and other congressmen. Naveen is born Indian ,but will never understand india. He cannot speak any Indian language. state is becoming a big blot in Inda's growth, becuse of BJD
Party Gundagiri should be stopped and police shold start using bullets to tame rioters
Has this guy not got a reputation for this kind of activity?
Journalism of courage, Thanks for exposing these congress gundas
Quickly conduct the inquiry & court proceedings so that these politicians who are behind this public instigation be put behind bars for atleast 10 years .... best advice to BJD to cash on those and start a new image of having taken quick decisions and punishing guilty setting examples. Do NOT loose any opportunity to punish these Congress leaders
One can see the arrogance on Tytler's face when he defends his partymen's actions in orrisa on TV channels. Also checkout youtubbe for that NDTVs interview where Tytler threatened lawyer HS Phoolka
