Bhubaneswar: Members of Utkal Sambadika Mahasangha today met DG Police Dr RP Sharma and sought his intervention in providing adequate security to scribes during election coverage.

President of the association Bibhuti Bhshan Kar submitted a memorandum to Dr Sharma and urged him to direct police officials across the State to be sensitive to cases involving assault of journalists.

“There have been many instances where journalists are being targeted by political activists during the elections. We have requested the DGP to instruct IICs to initiate immediate action in such cases,” Kar said.
