Cuttack: Activists of Odisha Surakhya Sena on Saturday had blocked the busy roads of Badambadi area in the city protesting against the ongoing violence in Bhadrak.
They have demanded for the immediate transfer of the Bhadrak SP, further holding him responsible for the riot-like situation there.
A rally moved towards the main Chhak and blocked the road by burning tyres following which normal traffic came to a halt.
Similarly on Sunday afternoon, the NH-5 was blocked by the hundreds of activists from Bajrang Dal and Biswa Hindu Parishad. The highway was blocked for about two hours. Cummuters including ambulance car carrying patients were also detained due to the road blockade.
