In a big development today, Bajrang Dal’s Odisha Unit General Secretary Manas Mohanty has been arrested by the police for his alleged involvement in the communal violence in Bhadrak.
Earlier, the BJP Yuva Morcha’s Bhadrak District Unit President Bikash Shrestha was also arrested on charges of inciting communal passion.
A few days ago, Ward No. 15 BJD Councillor Subhankar Mohapatra was arrested on similar charges. However, it came to light that he has become a die-hard Hindu fanatic and supports the cause of VHP and Bajrang Dal instead of following the BJD ideology.
