An RTI activist has allegedly got death threat from police for his Facebook posting protesting tainted Balangir SDPO by writing ‘Narayan Naik Go Back’.
He had posted video clippings of protests against the lower Suktel irrigation project in 2013 and assault on protestors by the then Balangir SDPO. He had also posted video of a threat he got allegedly from the SDPO office.
According to sources on May 9, activist Shankar Panigrahi had uploaded a few videos clippings of people's opposition to construction of lower Suktel irrigation project in 2013 wherein then SDPO Narayan Naik was seen assaulting agitating people. Naik was transferred from Bolangir after the postings.
But he was recently again posted as SDPO Bolangir.
“After I uploaded the video protesting the posting of SDPO Naik, I got a phone call from a mobile phone number 7682955014 which threatened me of dire consequences and kill me in encounter,” said Panigrahi, adding, “When I asked him who was speaking to him over the phone, the caller replied that he was speaking  from the SDPO office.”
“Later, I shared the entire discussion and audio clippings on different groups created in Whatsapp,” said Panigrahi further.
However, when contacted, SDPO Naik rubbished the allegation. “It might be the work of some vested interest. SDPO office is not involved in the incident,” he said.
