Bhubaneswar DCP warns action against self-immolation bid before Assembly

Bhubaneswar: Bhubaneswar DCP Umashankar Dash has said that some vested interest groups are trying to tarnish the image of State Assembly by organizing self-immolation before it.

Dash said the police have arrested three persons in this connection who tried to commit such abortive crime in front of Odisha Assembly in the past two days.

He said the act is unlawful and the instigators will be booked under the penal code provision. The Bhubaneswar DCP said by self-immolating in front of Assembly could never be a solution to their problem.

They are trying to get mileage out of the issue, Dash said and added that the abettors of the crime will never be spared by city police.
