Bhubaneswar: A former Corporator's son and two others were arrested for assault on city-based businessman Parvinder Singh. Parvinder said that a couple of them have anti-social antecedents because of which his family feels insecure in Bhubaneswar.
While three persons were nabbed in this case, the trio secured bail from Bhubaneswar SDJM's court within few hours after their arrest. "This raises questions on the gravity of the charges pressed by against the three accused. They should have been booked under attempt to murder charges." a senior Lawyer said.
Now as his attackers are free, Parvinder apprehends danger. "Who will give an assurance that they will not retaliate again. My family is petrified because I was beaten in the presence of police."
"I came to know that the prime accused in this case is Deepak Jena, son of Sikhar Jena, a former Corporator. The policeman leading the PCR van was hand in gloves with the goondas. Instead of saving, he silently watching them beating me," Parvinder added.
OMMCOM NEWS sought the reaction of senior officials of Commisisonerate Police over the matter. However, they were not reachable. Now the question remains whether Parvinder’s family will get any kind of security after this deadly attack.
