Bhubaneswar: Bringing serious allegations against Bhubaneswar-Central MLA Ananta Narayana Jena, a woman has filed a police case alleging physical assault among other charges.
In a complaint dated May 20 which was filed at Baghamari police station in Khurda district, the woman has named Jena and 22 of his associates in her complaint. She has alleged that the MLA and his associates came to her house on the night of May 19 and started obscenely abusing her absentee husband.
