Bhubaneswar: NCP MLA, Navin Nanda has moved a privilege notice against Dhenkanal Superintendent of Police, Satish Gajbhiye in the Assembly on Thursday for allegedly using defamatory language and threatening to arrest him.

Speaker Pradip Amat said he had received Nanda’s notice and he would give his ruling on the matter later.

Nanda said to the Assembly, that the incident took place on February 20 when some hooligans attacked him while he was travelling in his constituency, and badly injured his personal security officer and son in front of Nihalprasad Gram Panchayat office.

Nanda said he reached the Nihalprasad police station for help after the incident and sought adequate police protection as he was frightened and feared further attack.

Surprisingly, instead of apprehending the attackers, Gajbhiye spoke to TV reporters using defamatory language against me and even threatened to arrest me with the permission of honourable Speaker, the MLA alleged.

Terming the incident as serious, Nanda said as a public representative he was not allowed to move freely.
