Sambalpur: The jailor and two other staffers of the Circle Jail here have allegedly been assaulted by a warder in an inebriated condition last night.
Reports said that the accused warder, identified as Ashok Thati, had reported duty last night in a drunken condition.
When he was desisted by the jailor, Alok Kar, from doing the night duty and snubbed for such misconduct, he allegedly hit hard the faces of the jailor and another employee following which they sustained serious injuries.
However, other employees of the Circle Jail could manage to catch hold of the drunk warder and immediately alerted the Dhanupali Police Station (PS) following which the accused warder was taken into custody. A case has been registered against him and the investigation was on.
