While lawyers of the district staged a dharna in front of court premises, demanding filing of a murder case against the former SP and Baselisahi police station, the State Youth Congress through a lawyer appealed to the District Sessions Judge Court seeking filing of a case against Section 302 of the IPC against the two cops.
According to reports, State Youth Congress coordinator Ashutosh Samantray has filed the petition through lawyer Lalatendu Dash.
Similarly, lawyers staged a protest outside the court premises, demanding filing of a murder case against the former SP and the IIC.
In the meanwhile, conducting a hearing on a petition filed by advocate Sharat Rayguru, the Orissa High Court directed the State Government to provide ex gratia to the bereaved family of K Ramesh.
The State Government informed the court that K Ramesh didn’t die in lockup and post-mortem was conducted on his body in the presence of his father. K Ramesh died as he fell on the ground. The Government’s version would be countered in the court soon, said the advocate.
