Accusing Mahanga MLA Pratap Jena of being the mastermind in the murderous attack on Nyaya Pain Ladhei Parivar’s (NPLP) secretary Dilip Sahu, the NPLP’s president Subrat Das on Thursday lodged a complaint at Mahanga police station. 

The NPLP’s president Das warned that the NPLP would resort to strike if the police take no action against the miscreants and MLA Pratap Jena. 

“On September 26, some miscreants murderously attacked Nyaya Pain Ladhei Parivar’s (NPLP) secretary Dillip Sahu at Mahanga MLA Pratap Jena’s behest. No action has so far been taken against the miscreants involved. In this regard, the NPLP has lodged a written complaint at Mahanga police station,” said Das. 

In this regard, no reactions could be obtained from MLA Jena.
