Aul: The BJP activists on Monday organized a protest at Patrapur on Cuttack-Chandbali road demanding Crime Branch investigation into the murder case of Chitrasena Das, sarpanch of Singiri panchayat and prompt arrest of the accused.

Vehicular activity was disrupted for 60 minutes because of the road protest.

The BJP activists, however, withdrew the blockade after Aul tehsildar and Pattamundai SDPO assured them that the accused would be arrested very soon.

“Police had assured the people that it would arrest the accused within 72 hours. But it has failed to arrest the accused even after six days of the incident. Protesting the failure of the police, we had staged road blockade today. Since people have lost their faith on the police, we demand that the case should be taken up by the Crime Branch for investigation,” Brajasundar Bhuyan, Kendrapada district BJP vice president, told media persons here.
