Bhubaneswar: Despite the fact that two cops were arrested and court-forwarded, lawyers continued staging demonstrations at different Government offices and schools for consecutive second day on Wednesday demanding arrest of cops, who had beaten up a lawyer in Cuttack city, and ouster of Commissioner of Police and the Deputy Commissioner of Police for inaction.
The High Court Bar Association said it would take further course of action at a meeting to be held this afternoon. The lawyers have also threatened to stage gherao Chief Minister Naveen Panaik’s residence Naveen Niwal here.
Earlier in the day, the Crime Branch arrested Home Guards Kishore Jena and Dillip Singh. However, lawyers have said that the arrested are not real culprits and the attackers are moving scot-free.
It may be noted that some police personnel had beaten up lawyer Debi Prasad Tripathy at Nuapatna chhack on August 28 over some issue.
