Berhampur: Peeved over delay in arresting those involved in alleged attack on a sarpanch, Congress activists on Saturday staged a demonstration near the office of the superintendent of police here, police said.

Pradeep Bisoi, sarpanch of Anatei gram panchayat under Kukudakhandi block near here, was allegedly attacked by some miscreants on October 21 and was battling for life at MKCG medical college hospital here, they said.

“If the police failed to arrest the attackers within a week, we will be forced to resort to agitation,” Bhagaban Gantayat, working president of GanjamDCC, said. PTI
