Ganjam: Buguda police station inspector in-charge (IIC) Ramachandra Biswal on Thursday was transferred after he reportedly thrashed a lawyer at the police station on Tuesday.
Ganjam DIG Asish Singh said that Biswal has been attached with the Ganjam district police headquarters.
Notably, Biswal was accused of thrashing lawyer Hara Prasad Das inside the police station while he had gone to enquire about the reported police action on disputed land pending before the Orissa High Court.
However, Das alleged that he was beaten by the IIC and one of his colleagues inside the police station, which sparked widespread resentment among the lawyers.
Meanwhile, the Ganjam Bar Association today observed cease work in protest against alleged attack on an advocate by a police official.
