HC leash on police bodies’ agitation plan

CUTTACK: The High Court on Friday directed the Orissa Police Association, Orissa Havildar, Constable and Sepoy Confederation and All Orissa Judicial Officers’ Association to restrain themselves from going on strike or rallying in connection with the alleged police assault on a judicial magistrate at Rourkela.

The court directed all the three associations not to take law into their own hands as the matter is sub-judice. The high court bench comprising Chief Justice V Gopalagowda and Justice B N Mohapatra also directed the associations not to make any statement before the media in the matter until further orders from the court.

The directive followed a PIL filed by a lawyer Dayanidhi Lenka, seeking a probe against the erring police official.

The court’s direction came in wake of the recent statements made by police associations that they will go on strike demanding revocation of the suspension order of their colleague.
