Bhubaneswar: Kharavel Nagar police has issued notice to three BJP leaders, including the party vice-president Samir Mohanty in connection with circulation of a fake intelligence letter of Odisha police.
Besides Mohanty, notices were also issued to party spokesperson Golak Mohapatra and youth wing president Tankadhar Tripathy.
While Mohanty has been asked to appear before the Kharavel Nagar police on Thursday, the two other leaders have been directed to depose before it on Friday and Saturday.
Notably, the three leaders in a press conference on Monday produced a intelligence report of Odisha police which had recommended the Chief Minister and BJD president Naveen Patnaik not to contest from Hinjili.
However, DGP rubbished the report as fake and ordered lodging of FIR for misleading people.
Meanwhile, both BJD and BJP moved the Chief Electoral Officer Surendra Kumar demanding action against each other over the report.
