According to reports, MLA Sahu has filed a complaint against Sanjukta and one Bikas Behara accusing them of planning to kill him and his daughter. Basing on the complaint, the Polsara police registered a case under Sections 506, 507 and 120-B of IPC.
In his complaint, Sahu mentioned that Bikas Behera had chatted with Sanjukta Mahala on the Facebook of a woman namely Sanjukta Mahal and wrote that 'I wanted to kill Srikant Sahu'. After reading the chats of Bikas Behera, Sanjukta Mahala asked him (Bikash) to contact her and also shared her mobile number.
On the other hand, Sanjukta Mahala smelled a conspiracy behind FIR. "The police are working on the behest of the MLA. The FIR is a conspiracy against me," Mahala said.
She added, " The only mistake I have made is that I shared my phone number in the comment box. If I had such intention, I would have not shared my number on Facebook." Adding" I have also filed an FIR against Bikas Behera, but no case was registered. But, a case was registered based on Srikant Sahu's FIR against me. The police are showing a step-motherly attitude towards me."
"I am in deep sorrow now. I am fighting for my rights and I have full faith in God," she added.
Notably, the BJD leader Sanjukta Mahala had earlier brought physical and mental harassment allegations against Sahu and lodged a complaint in April. She also lodged another complaint against the latter at Mahila Police Station in Bhubaneswar in July this year.
Recently, she moved the High Court alleging that despite lodging a complaint no action has been taken by the. She has prayed the High Court's direction for appropriate direction in this matter.
