The BJP members of Athagarh staged a demonstration and took out a rally to protest the police inability to control the increasing crime rate in the town.

They alleged that since the criminals were hands in glove with police administration and politicians, crime rate has been rising. The demonstration came in the wake of the recent arrest of Khuntukata Sarpanch Rajesh Naik here by Kolkata police.

According to reports, about 50 cases of serious nature were registered with West Bengal police against Rajesh. He was allegedly absconding from West Bengal and had taken shelter here with the help of an MLA. Sources said the MLA had supported the candidature of Rajesh in the election to the post of Khuntukata Sarpanch.

The BJP members submitted a memorandum addressed to the Governor to the Sub-Collector.
