The officer-in-charge of Bagbera, Rajesh Ranjan also came to Mangotia’s house and dealt with the protesters, where there was a commotion between the police and protesters leading to the assault on the mukhia.
In this connection, the police have already registered a counter case with the Jugsalai police station and have started probing into the matter.
Officer-in-charge, Jugsalai confirmed that a complaint of assault on a mukhia has been received at his police station and the matter is under investigation.
