Cuttack: Upset over police inaction, the woman journalist, who had filed a complaint against BJD’s Kendrapara MP Anubhav Mohanty for allegedly abusing her physically and verbally, on Sunday sat on dharna at Purighat Police Station here demanding action against the lawmaker.
The woman, Sasmita Acharya alleged that though she had filed an FIR against the actor-politician two months ago, police are yet to start investigation in the matter. She further alleged that the Purighat police has changed the content of her FIR.
She demanded that police initiate immediate action against the politician citing threat to her life. The woman lodged a complaint at the Purighat police station in this regard last month.
Earlier on June 20, she reached Naveen Niwas, the residence of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik seeking CM’s intervention for justice. However, she was whisked away by the police personnel.
“I will sit on dharna at the police station until justice is delivered to me. Neither the Chief Minister nor the police are interested to ensure justice to me,” alleged the married woman.
She alleged that the MP’s brother, Anuprash, used to misbehave with her when she was doing internship with a regional newspaper in Cuttack.
After discussing the matter with her husband, the 29-year-old woman from Jhanjirmangala area had gone to meet Anubhav in his house on June 12 night seeking his intervention into the matter.
However, the MP and his wife and Ollywood actress Barsa Priyadarshini abused her verbally and physically instead of the paying attention to her plight.
