A Right to Information activist, who has been working to expose irregularities in the mining sector, on Sunday claimed to be living in constant fear after having received death threats from the mining mafia.
The 45-year-old activist, Sarbeswar Behura alias Chaguli, said he had lodged three separate complaints with the police and met Jajpur Superintendent of Police seeking security. However, the police have been sitting on the complaints, he alleged.
He alleged that a group of anti-social elements came to his house last week and threatened to kill him.
