According to sources, Ratnakar Pradhan and his brother Subas Pradhan approached Subalaya police station after a fight broke out between them. While police accepted the complaint of Subas, the officials reportedly turned down the complaint of Ratnakar.

After accepting Subas’ complaint, ASI Meher came to the village in plain cloth for investigation and allegedly misbehaved with Ratnakar’s wife, sources informed.
