Complaint against 3 cops for ‘manhandling’ BJP Mahila Morcha activists

Bhubaneswar: The BJP Mahila Morcha today filed complaint against 3 police officers alleging them of manhandling the members of the morcha during an agitation in front of Naveen Niwas on Tuesday. Morcha president Prabhati Parida filed the complaint at Bhubaneswar Mahila Police Station today.

The members of the BJP Mahila Morcha have demanded strict action against the concerned police officials.

“We have filed complaint against 3 ACPs. How can someone who provides security to the CM manhandle women?” Prabhati Parida questioned.

“We condemn the misconduct by police officials and demand immediate action against the concerned officials,” she added.

The BJP Mahila Morcha workers had staged an agitation in front of Naveen Niwas yesterday alleging derogatory remarks against women by Minister Pradeep Maharathy.

According to sources, police stopped the members of the BJP Mahila Morcha at Rajmahal Square, though some of them reached Naveen Niwas by taking another route.

A few BJP women workers who reached the spot and tried to enter Naveen Niwas were reportedly stopped by police personnel leading to a scuffle.

Later, the Mahila Morcha leaders alleged that their workers and leaders were manhandled by male police personnel.
However, police officials have not issued any statement over the complaint.
