He questioned them about their family dispute at around 11 PM. Instead of solving the problem, Swain all of a sudden started beating both Basanti and Rita mercilessly.
Demanding stringent action against the accused police official, Basanti, who had sustained severe injury in the attack, had filed a written complaint against the IIC with the Puri Superintendent of Police (SP) and Puri Court yesterday.
