Pitambar Nayak, an assistant sub-inspector of police and Bipina Bihari Nanda, constable have been suspended by the disciplinary authority under clouds of their suspected involvement in a lockup death in the Mahanga police station within the constituency of Orissa’s Assembly Speaker.

In demand for exemplary action against the police personnel responsible for the custodial death, about half a thousand people of the locality had staged a road blockade on National Highway No.5 last night, disrupting vehicular traffic from 9 pm to 2 am.

Police authorities not only suspended the accused duo, but also have pressed into action the Human Rights Protection Cell in order to conduct an in depth investigation.
