Earlier, Jagdev had approached High Court for bail. However, the High Court asked him to go to a lower court for the purpose. He then filed a bail petition before the ADJ-1 Court.
On conducting a hearing, ADJ-1 Samar Behera rejected his bail application, according to reports.
Notably, Jagdev had been booked under the SC and ST Atrocities Prevention Act for beating BJP Balungaon Mandal president Niranjan Sethi on September 8. A video of Jagdev beating the BJP leader had also gone viral.
Sources said some other cases are also pending against Jagdev.
