No Complaints On Police Misbehaviour Lodged: Cuttack DCP In Response To MP Anubhav

Bhubaneswar: Within hours of BJD’s Kendrapara MP, Anubhav Mohanty’s tweet, alleging misbehaviour by police and inaction against his neighbour, Cuttack DCP Akhileswar Singh responded that the complaint has been looked into. He however clarified that no complaint with regard to allegations of police misbehaviour has been lodged by the MP.

Tagging the Commissionerate Police on microblogging site Twitter, Mohanty last night alleged “Sir, there has been regular & serious allegations against a particular guy #ManjeetDas who is unfortunately my neighbour. I’m standing in front Of my house & trying my best to contact concerned PS but no action yet. Please help.” In a thread to the tweet, the BJD MP also alleged misbehaviour by the inspector-in-charge of Purighat Police station. “I was misbehaved by the IIC Purighat. It really hurts the way they are interconnected,” he tweeted.

The MP had however not mentioned what had actually happened and what were the allegations against his neighbour or police.

Responding to the allegations levelled by the BJD MP, Cuttack DCP Akhileswar Singh said, “There was an altercation between two people in front of the MP’s residence. The IIC of the concerned police station visited the spot, inquired into the incident and had asked the MP to lodge a formal complaint.”

Speaking about the allegations of police misbehaviour, Singh said, “We have not received any report regarding police misbehaviour. If the MP is levelling allegations, we will inquire into it.”
