After the incident came to light, hundreds of Odias living in the area gheraoed Sector 39 police station since the police had, initially, dubbed it as a case of road mishap. The Odias said it was a clear case of murder and demanded arrest of the culprits.

Chairman of Odisha Khadi Board Tejeswar Parida, who headed Yuba Parishad, said this is the second such incident after the brutal attack on Odia NGO activist Linkan Subudhi.

Attention of the Home Department and Principal Resident Commissioner’s Office has been drawn for requesting the UP Government for a thorough probe into the matter, Parida said.
