Kandhamal Superintendent of Police (SP) Pratik Singh today told media persons here that police have taken the matter seriously and special team has been constituted to nab accused Kanhar.
He said a case has been registered against the woman who made the video viral.
The SP said that the former MLA’s wife had made the video viral. Meanwhile, Kanhar, his wife and driver are absconding.
