Bhubaneswar, September 8
Senior Congress leaders Jagdish Tytler and Niranjan Patnaik were today booked by the police for a clash between party supporters and policemen. The clash, that broke out during the course of a rally on September 6, allegedly left over 260 persons injured here. The Congress has filed a counter-FIR against BJD President Naveen Patnaik and the police.

"Cases have been registered against several Congress leaders including state Congress in-charge Jagdish Tytler and Niranjan Patnaik on charges pertaining to Thursday's violence," Deputy Commissioner of Police Nitinjeet Singh said.

Singh said five cases have so far been registered at the Capital and Kharavel Nagar police stations while efforts were being made to identify those responsible for the violence. The charges were criminal conspiracy, rioting, causing grievous injury, endangering lives of others, outraging modesty and mischief under the IPC. PTI
