Keonjhar: Western region Deputy Inspector General of Police Jaya Narayan Pankaj on Wednesday visited Keonjhar in connection with the bomb attack on BJP Chief Whip in the State Assembly, Mohan Majhi last week.
The DIG visited the spot along with senior police officers and inspected the progress of the investigation into the bomb attack by unknown miscreants.
Meanwhile, nine Bharatiya Janata Party legislators visited Keonjhar on Tuesday in solidarity with Mohan Majhi and threatened to launch an agitation if the police failed to nab the accused. The legislators also alleged that the Keonjhar SP was shielding the culprits and demanded his immediate transfer.
