The Orissa Constable and Havildar Mahasangh on Tuesday reiterated its demand for arrest of senior Congress leader Jagdish Tytler on charges of inciting party workers to attack the police during a September 6 rally here.
Tytler and other Congress leaders have been named in eight cases for allegedly inciting the mob that assaulted a woman constable, Pramila Padhi, as well as attacked an inspector, Anup Kanungo. Several other police personnel were among those injured.
Mahasangh president Padmanabha Behera, who had earlier threatened of constables and havildars striking work if Tytler and other Congress leaders were not arrested, said his association as well as the Orissa Police Association and Orissa Police Services Association would take stock of the situation at a meeting on September 13.
"We met the Home Secretary today and he assured us that the government would take action against Tytler as per available evidence," Behera said.
Behera said his association has made it clear that no policeman would provide security to Tytler henceforth.
Petition filed in supreme court
The anti-Koodankulam nuclear power plant protest reached the Supreme Court on Tuesday as a petition was filed seeking directions to restrain the Centre and other authorities from commissioning the project. The petition by social activist G Sundarrajan was filed against the Madras High Court's August 31 order that had declined to impose any restraint over its commissioning. The plea sought an interim injunction against any further act relating to commissioning Unit 1 and 2 of the power plant till the recommendations of the task force regarding the said project are fully implemented. It has claimed that non-implementation of various recommendations formulated by the government's task force puts to grave risk the safety of millions of citizens.
