Bhubaneswar: In the ongoing row over viral audio on COVID-19 mismanagement, the authorities of a reputed Odia news channel have lodged a complaint against Capital Police Station Inspector In Charge (IIC) Girija Chakrabarty.
The authorities of Odisha Television Limited (OTV) today met Bhubaneswar DCP and urged to lodge a complaint against Capital PS IIC, Girija Chakrabarty, under Sections 166, 167, 193, 218 of the IPC.
The news channel appraised the DCP that the IIC of Capital Police Station served notice late at night but gave no time to respond, which account for a clear violation of the directions of Punjab and Haryana High Courts.
It may be mentioned here that the Commissionerate Police had asked the television channel to submit documents related to the viral audio on COVID-19 mismanagement. It is alleged that the concerned IIC of the Capital PS did not accept the documents from OTV’s Public Relations Officer.
However, no Capital PS IIC Girija Chakrabarty was unavailable for comments on this issue.
