Unrest In Khordha After Constable Caught Asking For Bribe

Khordha: Reports of unrest from Khordha came in after a constable of the Shilpanchal Outpost was caught by the locals while asking for a bribe.

Last night, locals alleged that the constable in a drunken stupor was asking bribe from a driver whose truck was carrying sand. The locals objected it and also immediately informed the Town Police Station.

As the unrest grew, nearby officials in the patrolling vehicle and that of the Shilpanchal Outpost tried to mediate the angered crowd and took away the accused constable.

Khordha SP Ajay Pratap Swain has vowed to look into the matter and take necessary action against the constable if found guilty.
