Cong demands judicial probe into police-fraudster nexus

Cuttack: Expressing frustration over the current law and order situation in Cuttack, particularly over the conduct of some police officers, Congress today submitted a memorandum to Odisha DGP seeking judicial inquiry into the alleged unholy nexus between police inspectors and fraudsters.

A Congress delegation, led by the party’s Cuttack city chief Md Moqim and accompanied by PCC vice-president Suresh Mohapatra, met the DGP and urged him to keep five senior police inspectors off duty till inquiries against them are over.

It also demanded stringent and exemplary punishment against the erring police inspectors.

Twin City police commissioner Y B Khurania had on Thursday announced that Cuttack DCP Sanjib Arora would investigate into the allegations that the police inspectors were protecting the fraudsters.
