Kendrapara: An ex-army jawan was thrashed by police personnel during a helmet and mask checking at Tinimuhani Chowk in Kendrapara Town on Thursday. A video of the incident is doing rounds on social media.
Reportedly, former army jawan Manoranjan was returning with his family when he was fined by police at College Chowk for not wearing a mask. Few meters away, he was again asked by police at Tinimuhani Chowk to pay the fine.
When Manoranjan refused to pay the fine, he was allegedly abused by the police and also attacked when he retaliated. He was later arrested by Kendrapara Town Police on charges of attacking police including a lady constable and Sub-Inspector.
