Bolangir: In the wake of the viral video on the deplorable act of Patnagarh’s new MLA Saroj Meher, the allegedly tortured Junior Engineer’s aggrieved wife today lodged a written complaint (FIR) with the Patnagarh police station.

As per the FIR, the concerned JE’s wife has alleged that yesterday (05.06.2019) in the afternoon hours the MLA and his party workers came to the residence and forced her husband to follow them.  

The JE is of PWD and is in charge of Patnagarh and Belpada block, the FIR mentions.

“Today I noticed the viral video showing that MLA Saroj Meher making my husband do 100 times sit-ups within the deadline of five minutes in public glare at Gambhari village. Under the order of the MLA, some villagers have also thrashed my husband. Also he has hurled abuses and casteist remarks. Hence, my tribal husband has lost mental balance. He hasn’t turn up home since yesterday. I suspect that the MLA might have caused some untoward incident towards my husband after the abduction,” alleges the JE’s wife in her police complaint.

The aggrieved wife of the JE, who hails from a tribal community, has also demanded immediate arrest of Patnagarh MLA Saroj Meher.

On the contrary, Patnagarh MLA Saroj Meher was not available till the filing of this news for his comments on the latest development.
