Setting another example of carelessness and lack of empathy, Odisha’s Kendrapara Police even after 10 days of registering a complaint lodged by a woman public representative, former Samiti Member of Derabish Block in the district, against a man of the same village of brutally attacking her, the police is yet to arrest the accused or investigate into the matter.
Meanwhile, when asked about the shoddy investigation into the complaint, police has come up in support of the accused and said she has not been attacked by the culprit.
Reportedly, Kanchan Bala, former Samiti Member of Jariabarimul in Derabish Block in Kendrapara district was verbally abused and brutally attacked with a lethal weapon by Aniruddha Swain of the same village over some issue. Sustaining injuries she was admitted to hospital. She had lodged a complaint with local police but no action was taken.
“without any reason Aniruddha Swain attacked me and I had sustained grievous injuries on my head and face. Even if I have lodged a complaint against the accused no action has been taken against the accused. Instead of arresting the accused, the police are saying, I have not been attacked and the accused is not involved in the case,” said the accused Kanchan Bala.
Are the 17 stitches and injury marks over my body are fake as the police are saying he has not even touched me, questioned Kanchan Bala.
