BHUBANESWAR: The State Commission for Women (SCW) has sought documents from Sikha Samantray, sister-in-law of BJD’s Barabati-Cuttack MLA Debashis Samantray, in support of her allegation that her husband has been deprived of his share in family property.
Sikha had a two-hour meeting with SCW Chairperson Lopamudra Baxipatra on Wednesday. She was accompanied by her son, daughter and her sister.
Debashis, on the other hand, filed a complaint at Badambadi police station accusing his sister-in-law of trying to defame him because he refused to give some amount of money which she had demanded. A station diary entry has been made in this connection.
Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Md Moquim told a media conference that the matter has been pending for more than two years with Cuttack Police. “If no action is taken, Mahila Congress activists will take to the streets to get justice for Sikha,” he said.
