Death of the 15 year old burn victim of Kendrapara triggered angry reactions with members of the Chhatra Congress staging a late night gherao of Health and Family Welfare Minister Damodar Rout on Thursday.

They also pelted stones at the Minister's house and made an attempt to gherao Naveen Nivas before being thwarted in their attempt at Airport Square.

Soon after the girl's death was announced around mid-night, the agitating activists rushed to Rout's Unit I residence where they staged a gherao and pelted stones.

They also made an attempt to gherao Naveen Nivas but were stopped by the police at Airport Square.

Heavy police bandobast was made around the Forest Park and the Airport areas to prevent any further untoward incident.
